2019 Summer Retreat: Present Moment, Ancestral Roots


Heart to Heart with Master Astrologer Mary Kate Jordan and Folksinger/Storyteller Tim VanEgmond 

PRESENT MOMENT, ANCESTRAL ROOTS
August 9-11, 2019
at Spirit Fire Retreat Center, Leyden MA

Indulge in this weekend of soul-renewal for your own sake, for the sake of your lineage lines, and for the sake of our world herself.
Immerse yourself in a beautiful setting as Mary Kate Jordan gently leads you to bring forward the best of your ancestral root patterns.
Enjoy the company of congenial companions, guided imagery,
simple astrological symbolism, mythology, time outdoors with mother nature, live music provided by folksinger/storyteller Tim Van Egmond
and mouth-watering vegetarian meals.

Weekend  Schedule: 
Arrive Friday in time to settle in. We’ll gather at 6:00 to start the weekend with sacred music, brief introductions, housekeeping details
and an overview of our time together before we share our first meal.

After dinner we’ll get to know each other a bit better, explore some words of Thich Nhat Hanh on ancestors and the present moment, and share a journey into guided imagery so we can relax and deepen our focus for the weekend. Session followed by a sing-along.

Saturday 
starts with (optional) Raise the Inner Sun dance time before breakfast. Morning sessions include simple astrological symbolism,
personal ancestral pattern recognition, and music.
Then we’ll enjoy lunch and a bit of free time.

Our afternoon session starts with music,
then sends us outdoors with the astrological elements
(fire, earth, air, water) as mother nature presents them.
Indoors, we’ll also explore these elements in relation to our lineage lines.

After dinner, we’ll deepen our relationships with the element fire and the apparent emptiness of space as we focus on the Moon and some of the clusters of Star People we know as the summer constellations. Weather permitting, we’ll enjoy a campfire under the stars. 

Sunday
begins with another (optional) Raise the Inner Sun dance time before breakfast. Our final session will blend more of the wisdom of Thich Nhat Hanh with our weekend discoveries, potential next steps, more music, and group closure before we indulge in one more meal and say goodbye to our hosts.

Exchange for room, board, and weekend program, $425.  Circle the Sun members, $385. Commuters, $325 for meals and weekend program.
