Last year the Aspen Chapel offered a ‘Speaker Program’. The series brought modern mystics to the chapel, to share their wisdom.
This year we wanted to expand the idea into more of a ‘retreat’. To that end we will be offering a more ‘holistic’ approach, enabling you to you take time out of your life and put yourself in an environment to re-evaluate and refresh. We will be offering meditation at the start of each day, yoga at lunchtime and healthy plant based snacks with our teas and coffees.
We are also encouraging you to join us for a potluck lunch – inviting you to bring a salad, or some other offering, to share with others.
Each event will be a chance to form a small community for that weekend and get to know new people, as well as being exposed to the wisdom of our visiting facilitators.
The events will run a little earlier than last year, giving people more time at the end of the day. We will start on the Saturday at 9.00am MT and have a lunch break at 11.30- 12.30. The day will finish at 3pm.
On each of the Sundays we will be joined by the Aspen Chapel Community as we gather at 9.30am. There will be an hour together with Q&A to integrate the weekend. We will then have a reception afterwards. This Sunday portion is free and open to all. The Saturday Retreats are all $80, with the live streaming cost set at $65. There are substantial reductions for subscribing to more of the events.
The program will be introduced on February 1st 6-8pm by Rabbi Shira Stutman, who is working with our friends at the Aspen Jewish Congregation.
She will be talking about ‘Gender and the Divine – He/She/It/Them/They?’ Click here for details
