Weekend Retreat for People of Color: Healing Ourselves, Healing our World
with Kaira Jewel Lingo
2/2/2018  - 2/4/2018
at Sanctuary Retreat Center (Beallsville)
Friday, February 2-Sunday, February 4. In this retreat for People of Color, we will pause to stop running, to stop "doing", to calm our minds and bodies and to be at ease. A retreat is an opportunity to let go of our worry and anxiety about the past and the future, rest, and begin to be present for what is happening in the present moment. Everyone can practice because everyone can breathe.
