December’s Mini Retreat at Renaissance
On Sunday, December 13th, eleven women gathered at Renaissance Healing Center for a mini retreat. We took time to enter the silence of the season and with poetic license, wrote and laughed and inspired each other.
The following is a blessing poem created with words from the day’s writings. Each person contributed one line.
Standing under the window,
May we know we are both the observer
and the observed
May we seek new knowledge
and remember old
May we be clear and centered
May we be rooted in the tree of life,
shimmering leaves, flowing grace
May we be strong and delicate in our interactions
May we learn from the darkness, embrace it,
then move forward into the light
May we have clarity where we are
and where we are going
May we be our true selves, whomever that may be
May we grow and grow and grow
May we go forth with our crayons
and draw something.
May we know we are one.
January’s mini-retreat will also be at Renaissance Healing Center on Sunday the 10th, 2:00 – 4:30 pm. In the first month of 2010, will work/play with image and word to step into the new year with creativity and authenticity.
