Spiritual Survival for the Holidays
A Day to Nurture your Spiritual Self
Saturday, December 10, 2016.
12 Noon – 7:00 p.m.
Around the world people celebrate the darkest time of year with the symbol of light. We bring light to shine into the darkness with Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, Santa Lucia Day, and for Muslims December 23rd - the birth of the prophet Muhammad called Mawlid el-Nabi.
Maintaining and deepening your spiritual connection and practices can be a challenge at the best of times, but during the biggest holiday season of the year, it is perhaps most difficult.
The holidays can also be emotionally rocky – memories of holidays past, loved ones who are missing, adaptation to changing life stages; desire for a place at the table, literary and figuratively, that touches into our most basic human longing to belong.
As well there’s the challenge of accepting realities that don’t match our expectations, be that the gifts, the gatherings, the people or the experience. And at the same time all these challenges hold opportunities to connect with our spiritual essence, to heal our relationships, and to grow emotionally and spiritually.
So right smack into the middle – Saturday, December 10th, I am offering a day workshop to support you to open your heart to it all, to drop into your depths and set your inner compass for the season, by discovering your own significance of this season of light in the darkness.
This day workshop will include teaching, meditation, silence and stillness, movement and experiential exercises. Snacks and beverages will be provided but if you need a more substantial meal please bring a brown bag lunch.
