Invitations of the Earth

Our lives, and the ways we live, flow in varied ways as the seasons influence our experience of the world… the weather, the light, the darkness, the changes in plant and animal life. At the Christine Center, all who visit experience four distinct seasons. We watch the fullness of summer leaves transform into vivid color as the days shorten and nights grow longer. As the leaves gradually let go of the limbs that have supported them and gently find their way to the ground to be enveloped in a white blanket, we pull out our snowshoes and parkas. As the snow melts away, we pull out our wellies and notice the green sprouts of plant life, beginning their new cycle. And as the leaves once again grace our trees in summer, we go barefoot in the grass and bask in the sun’s warmth and the soft earth. 

Living within the transitions of the seasons, we align our daily routines with the offerings of the Earth. The beautiful woodland sanctuary of the Center offers an ever-shifting canvas for the Earth and her seasons. Along with our physical experience of the elements, there is deep mystery and transformation unfolding within all of life, offering us the energy of the season to dive deeply into the mystery unfolding within ourselves. 

Within this invitation of the Earth has emerged a new series of programs, Seasons of Deepening. This new series is a unique opportunity to join the Christine Center Sisters as a community of seekers in making 2021 a soul-year of connecting deeply to our world and our inner depth. 
Seasons of Deepening ~ Spring!

Friday evening ~ Sunday morning
March 5-7, 2021
With the continued concern of Covid-19, we have decided to move our Spring offering completely online as a weekend experience. This opportunity to connect with you through the portal of Zoom, while grounding in the area of Earth we inhabit at home, brings a unique opportunity to expand the energy of gathering in shared ritual to the many points on the map from which we join. 

This highly experiential retreat includes contemplative time, personal ritual, and shared opportunities for spiritual exploration. Using music meditations, seasonal reflections, shared conversation and exploration, a ritual for clearing and opening, and deepening integrations sessions, we will cultivate an experience of deep interconnectivity which we carry home with a homeward blessing.

We hope you can join us!
