to Oct 20

CIRCLE OF TRUST RETREAT: AUTUMN HARVEST: SEEDS & SUSTENANCE

Autumn in Vermont is a time of great beauty and preparation. 

The leaves blaze and descend, exposing bare limbs and wider vistas. Weather weaves a dance of warm-cold-wet-warm… It is time to savor what we are harvesting and what we are carrying into the dark month ahead. With the vista of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains as a backdrop, we will gather to explore the paradoxes of autumn: harvest and seeds, darkness and light. We invite you to bring your questions and quandaries as we explore the letting go and the letting in dance of the autumn in a Circle of Trust community.

THREE DAY CIRCLE OF TRUST RETREAT® WINTER'S GIFTS: REKINDLING THE LIGHT WITHIN

Winter in the northland is a time for rest, renewal and rekindling.

While the land around us is dark and cold, so much is going on inside. Seeds, dreams, wishes and wisdom find their beginnings as earth slowly turns toward the sun. At this time of new beginnings, we invite you to take time for inner listening in the company of others and in the safety of a Circle of Trust - "where people can find safe space to nurture personal and professional integrity and the courage to act on it."  

Tara Reynolds and Holly Wilkinson will be co-facilitating this journey and bring years of experience in creating safe space for reflection and connection. Trained Courage & Renewal facilitators, we are excited to begin the new year in good company.
