Listening to the Land – Listening to Our Bodies – A Weekend Retreat
September 29 - October 1
Theme: Listening to the Land – Listening to Our Bodies
Dayspring is bathed in the prayers of our ancestors who blessed the land, and were blessed by it. You can feel it when you’re there. Our bodies are of the earth… from dust to dust. It is our physical and metaphysical ground. This retreat will offer a time of synchronizing ourselves within the silence, both to each other and to the land underneath and around us. Clearing and connecting our energy centers (also known as Chakras), we divinely align and participate in the Great Unfolding: Love incarnated in the natural world.
Leader: Jim Marsh Jr. is a United Methodist pastor, child, adolescent, and family psychotherapist, and co-director of Headwaters, a youth transitional age rites of passage program within Recovery Cafe DC. Jim has been working within and around The Church of the Saviour since 2001. Within the things that Jim “does”, he’s reminded often that his greatest work is to find ways in which to simply “be”.
Weekend retreats run Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. The silence begins Friday night after dinner when the leader opens the retreat and introduces the theme. The leader usually offers brief reflections with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends after breakfast Sunday morning with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.
