Grief Retreat: Journey towards Wholeness

December 7 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Throughout life, we experience the loss of people, places, and things. We will reflect on our losses and discover how loss can lead to greater wholeness and holiness.

This ecumenical service will be held to honor family and friends who have died. We are planning to honor our deceased loved ones by displaying a personalized ornament on a tree. The service is a living memorial and provides an opportunity for you and your family to experience a new and meaningful ritual. During this service you will be presented with the ornament to take and place in your home during the holiday season.

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!
Moms, daughters, and other loved ones of all ages are invited to join us for this annual tea gathering. Wear your favorite holiday dresses, and girls, bring your dolls, too! We will be presenting tea, hot chocolate, canapés, and holiday desserts on the Mound’s Heritage Collection of porcelain plates and silver services. Nativities from around the world will be available for viewing in our Art Gallery.

Join us in honoring the longest night and shortest day of the year through song and ritual, celebration and contemplation. Most of this session will take place indoors, though we'll have a small fire outdoors, as well as opportunity for contemplative time outdoors. All are welcome to this ecumenical gathering.

Forest Therapy Walk

December 22 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Forest Therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Forest Bathing. Forest Therapy is not a naturalist walk. Rather, it is a slow, meditative walk in nature that takes a holistic view to the physiological, mental, emotional, and psycho-spiritual benefits to be derived from an embodied contact with nature and aims to engage humans through their senses, not their intellects.

Perfectly Imperfect

January 31, 2020 7:30 pm - February 2, 2020 1:00 pm

Progress in our spiritual journey is not about achieving perfection. Rather it invites us to inquire openly and with compassion about finding how the divine expresses in our everyday lives.We often miss opportunities to deepen our spiritual growth by ignoring how our imperfections are actually the grist for the mill. Our imperfections are actually what we need to embrace in order to become free from old fears, doubts and self-doubts. Spiritual progress occurs only when we soften our self-aversion and begin to accept and relate wisely with deep compassion to what we judge to be imperfect.
