This is our 6 th annual year-end retreat!

Every day after breakfast we’ll join in the signature Christine Center morning prayer of movement, chant and meditation, followed by an 11:00 am session on dreams and dreaming by S. Marge Zulaski. The afternoon is for reflection, journaling and winter relaxation in the woods. Daily at 4:30 pm, poet and friend of the Christine Center, Jon Jones, will offer contemplative time featuring the soul-poetry of Rumi. After supper each evening there is opportunity to join a stimulating and thoughtful spiritual deepening conversation circle hosted by S. Gabriele Uhlein. The days conclude with a soothing music meditation.
New Year’s Eve is planned as a contemplative retreat day for blessing and releasing 2017. In the evening all are invited to a candlelight ritual to welcome 2018 followed by a festive social. New Year’s morning features a celebration of intention and blessing for the year ahead.

Let stillness call you! Come for the days you can!
Sound and Silence
December 15-17 (Friday-Sunday)
With Cecilia Corcoran, FSPA, PhD (right) and Wendy Kohlhaas, ICS, CSAC, LPN

Two practices based on praying from the heart frame this retreat. Sounds produced by gemstone crystal and Tibetan bowls help purify and raise the vibration of the body. The pure sound helps you release aches and tensions of a lifetime. Sacred singing, mantras, toning and giving voice can move us toward higher states of well-being. Learn and practice simple chants to pray when there are no words. Each tone makes its journey into deep places within the soul and aligns us with divine harmony. Learn More
