"INNER QUIET WITH A SENSE OF FLOW," Meditation, Yoga, and Therapeutic Touch as a Way of Life

January 15-17, 2016 Friday dinner through Sunday Lunch

Yoga, Meditation and Therapeutic Touch are skillful means to nourish new patterns of daily renewal. These practices are integrated, rooted in common spiritual principles.

Hatha Yoga* creates a harmonious balance and integration of our whole being. We cultivate our ability to 'boost and balance' our energy flow, even-out our emotional rhythms and to 'quieten' our mind. Then we can experience a natural 'spaciousness' of being, re-creating radiance from within outwards.

Meditation is a powerful and uplifting practice that can serve as a foundation for our lives. We will discuss Dora Kunz' guidance for letting go of long-term patterns that block our spiritual growth as well as simple and practical ways to re-center and renew our energy flow amidst our daily life.

We will share Therapeutic Touch as a gift of renewal and healing. It can be an opportunity to renew your practice. If you have not studied TT enjoy receiving a treatment.

Join us! The Hollow in winter is immersed in the pristine energies of deep calm and sparkling light which supports our process of inwardness. It is a 'wonder-full' time of renewal.

*This yoga is for everyone! Postures are adapted to each person, the primary focus is on a harmonious energy flow.

**Dora Kunz was a co-founder of Therapeutic Touch, a founder of Pumpkin Hollow, and a teacher of meditation throughout her life.

$80 plus room and board

Winter Solstice/New Year's Annual Retreat 2017

December 30, 2017 - January 1, 2018 Saturday afternoon through Monday brunch

A sacred time in nature for fellowship, meditation and celebration. A potent time to seed, nourish and share our aspirations.

"Let no one imagine that it is mere fancy the attaching of import to the birth of the new year cycle. The earth passes through definite phases and man with it. And as a day can be colored, so can the year. The astral life of the earth is young and strong between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox, those who form their intentions now will have added strength to fulfill them consistently." HP Blavatsky

The Pumpkin Hollow Community invites you to join with us for our annual Winter Solstice/New Year's Retreat.

The Hollow's natural, contemplative environment of healing energies, peaceful silence and pristine winter beauty make it an ideal place to review our lives and set our intentions for the coming year. As we celebrate together, we enjoy the feeling of 'coming home.'

We usher in the new year with joyful celebrations and deepening meditations. We share nature walks, creative group activities, personal and group rituals in the lovely atmosphere of these sanctuary grounds.

We warmly welcome you to join our gathering!
