Balance: Spirit Workshops May – July 2019
Balance. We’ll explore ways to recognize, recover & roll with dynamic balance in the coming months. This theme grew out of conversations among our participants, a curiosity about how to support each other in practices that support healthy balance. By the way, balance should not be confused with being comfortable. In fact, discomfort is needed at times to restore balance. Curious? Let’s explore together. For more information or to RSVP for these events, contact gro.ccucu@spohskroWtiripS, find us on Facebook or Meetup, or call 206-524-2322.
We offer programs on the first and third Sunday of each month.
First Sundays we host a public vigil and a writing session. On third Sundays, we’ll offer our trademark hands-on programs with personal reflections and sacred snack.
First Sundays from noon – 1pm
We take to the streets, with signs of the change we want to see in the world. May’s vigil will especially focus on welcoming & justice for immigrant neighbors.
2pm – 4pm on Sundays May 5 and June 2 at Chocolati Café in Wallingford.
This informal group for writers of all levels is led by 2 experienced writers who offer a couple prompts and lead conversation. We had such a good time with the initial experiment that the group decided to continue! Grab a hot chocolate, wine, or beer and find us in the upper back room. RSVP’s earnestly desired to secure the space.
Sunday, May 19, 2pm-4pm
You too can make mobiles. It’s easy and free, simple or complex, challenging…and then soothing when you’re done.
Join us in a cooperative learning adventure, led by Spirit Workshops member Molly Ebert, who has been crafting mobiles for years. You are welcome to bring meaningful objects from nature or your life to build your mobile. They should be lightweight, a similar weight, and able to be attached to string. We will also provide objects.
RSVPs earnestly requested to plan for materials: gro.ccuytisrevinu@spohskrowtirips find us on Facebook or Meetup, or call 206-524-2322.
