Earth Matters : Bodily Being

Led by Carla Grosch-Miller

In this time of ecological crisis, our bodily being - interdependent with other creatures and creation – gives us tools to survive and thrive, meeting the challenges of the day.
Drawing on neuroscience, scripture, poetry and music, we will explore bodily being in sessions including

  • Here we are
  • Breath
  • Grief
  • Gratitude
  • Wonder

This is a silent retreat with addresses and it will culminate in a Service of Holy Communion.
