     We all seek to grow and fulfill our highest
potential~ but all too often on our daily paths we feel held back by our habitual patterns. In this afternoon retreat we will shift our attention and gently cultivate the sacred space within ourselves while sharing in a small group. Through meditation, somatic exploration, and guided journey work we will explore the connections between our emotional and physical experience. Our intention for the afternoon will be to empower ourselves with the ability to respond in our lives consciously and fearlessly rather than to react automatically.

Sue and Ann have both been assisting people on their healing journeys for the past 25 years. For many of those years they have enjoyed a rich conversation identifying what it means to both “align with one’s truth” and “move in life from a deeper place of trust and wisdom”. It is our wish in this afternoon retreat to share that conversation and some of the tools we have gathered. Please join us around the fire in the “Wish Room” at the New Park Event Center. Dress comfortably in loose clothes for indoor sitting and weather appropriate attire for a walk outside on the land. Please bring your favorite cushion for sitting and a blanket for cover.

Date: Sunday Dec.4th 1:00pm.-5:00pm. Cost: $75.00 RSVP by Dec.1st, Contact Sue Hirschberger, 607 379-0161 or email susanstaf@gmail
