Journey to the Wilderness: Lenten Morning of Reflection

In the midst of a chaotic and stressful world and busy lives full of details and demands, we often forget to pause, take a breath and contemplate the wonder and awe that is our “self”. The Holy Season of Lent is an apt time to take that pause. Together we will engage in a quiet, contemplative process to take a deep, yet gentle, look at our Wilderness Journey and to reconnect with the Spirit of God that accompanies us on each and every step.

Discovering the Gifts of the Chakras

Chakras are centers of life force or vital energy in the human body. Each of the chakras correspond to points in the physical body such as major arteries, veins and nerves, as well as vital organs. The energy that flows through our chakras effects not only the physical body but also our emotional and spiritual lives.

Drumming Circle - Connect to the Rythm Within

Drumming is a time-honored method of healing and helping others. While the drum has the ability to put us in touch with our own natural rhythms, the circle helps draw our individual energies together, unifying them into a consolidated force.
