A Musical Meditation Experience: Main Theater

The experience is a meditation and reflection event led by the Inspiration Team and inspired by the Taizé community formed during War II in France. The monastic community was encouraged to live in the spirit of kindness, simplicity and reconciliation. It’s is an opportunity for you to go within, to sing along when your spirit is moved, or sit with eyes closed; whatever suits your needs. The experience is a time to truly awaken your soul. 

Featured artist: Inspiration Team

The Spirituality of Self Care: Library 1

We all experience stress in our lives and in the world around us.

How do we care about the world without being overwhelmed by it?
How do we live consciously and experience joy in these uncertain times?

In this experiential workshop, we will explore self care as a spiritual practice on a personal level and the impact of our own practices on the world. We will explore stress from the bottom up: the root causes, symptoms, beliefs, and impact of stress on our body, mind, and spirit.

We will explore the nature of burnout, compassion fatigue, and caring for the caregiver. We will help participants develop personalized, holistic care plans to guide a path to greater self care.

Presenters: Mel and Allison Dwyer; Michelle Crone

Healing Voices: Conference Room

Have you ever been told you can’t sing, you shouldn’t speak, or you’re too loud? Do you hear any one of the hundreds of messages that make our voices smaller, seemingly insignificant or that make us want to hide away and be silent? Then, this workshop is for you. Together, in a safe and nurturing environment, we will explore some of those messages, talk about their impact, and together through creative exercises and vocalizations, will begin the process of healing and sending our unique voices out into the universe where they belong.

Presenter: Carolyn Waters

Laughter Yoga: Cafeteria

The spirit of laughter can be cultivated easily with others.  Together, we will do simple, easy, and fun exercises, yogic breathing and deep relaxation leading to a group laughter meditation followed by a sound healing.  We will then experience silence together and explore five vital areas of our life through guided meditation. No yoga necessary.  Wear comfortable clothes. All ages welcomed.

Women’s Radical Aging: Library 1

Women’s Radical Aging explores our gradual awakening to aging as a practice of listening to ourselves, rather than defining our future self through outside ageist messages of  women growing old, being old. 

Using an interactive discussion group designed to energize, we will unpack personal and social attitudes that have influenced us as we journey into the later decades of our lives,

Using prompts, individuals will reflect and write down their thoughts on aging. Together, we will gather themes and identify those attitudes that serve us and those that diminish. We will go about the business of peeling  back the truth about the lives of women aging into their wisdom, into their creativity, into their changing bodies. We will learn to give voice not silence,  to understand community over isolation, and to action over inaction.

Presenter: Mary DeRocco

The Love Connection Workshop: Conference Room

This is a place holder for a workshop that will center on our relationships and keeping inspiration there too!  More information coming soon!
