Balance for Well-being: A Fall Equinox Retreat

  • Camp Benjamin 9582 Hawkinsville Road Boonville, NY, 13309 United States (map)

Come to a retreat sponsored by Weaving Home and Wholesome Living  on Saturday, September 22nd at 6:00 p.m. at Camp Benjamin, 9582 Hawkinsville Road, Boonvile. We will be practicing the art of yoga for balance, sharing a meal and gathering in contemplation for the well-being of our earth and ourselves. We will have songs, drum circle and dance. 

In John Philip Newell’s book The Rebirthing of God he talks about our necessity to reconnect with Love.  “Our longing for what is yet to be is part of the birth of what is yet to come. To long for love in our lives and our world is to be part of the creation of love. To desire wellness for our families and the earth is to stir energies deep within us that can be transfigured into words and actions of well-being in the world.” 

The Equinox is another threshold time the circle of the year, equal daylight and equal darkness remind us of our need for balance. As Newell says in the above quote: ‘our longing for what is yet to be is part of the birth of what is yet to come.’ We stand ready to make a difference in our environment and pause at this threshold of the season to take into account what has come before and to give thanks; and the to boldly dream of what is yet to be.  

Bring a dish to share for dinner, comfortable clothing for yoga and movement. For more information contact naomikelly58@gmail.com
