Honoring Ourselves and Our Community
UU NNED Women & Religion Fall Retreat
October 4-6, 2013
Geneva Point Conference Center
Our theme this year “Honoring Ourselves and Our Community” builds on our theme of “Gathering our Community” from last fall. The schedule, although not completely finalized, features our usual community gathering ceremonies – Closing and Opening the Sacred Circle, The Water Ceremony, Entertainment by Us, and The Worship Service – as well as a range of art, movement, acupressure and meditative workshops. As always, there is time for personal reflection and the flexibility to participate in as many or few workshops as you wish. Remember this is your weekend and we want it to work for you. I look forward to the positive energy and the connections I enjoy during the retreat and the gifts they provide me when we all depart.
All spaces at Geneva Point have heat. Bedding and bath towels are provided. You may want to bring a beach towel if you plan to swim or kayak/canoe. Meals and room assignments: Friday night dinner will be a pot luck provided by us and served in Gibbes House. Please bring your own plate, cup and flatware. The remainder of our meals Saturday- 3 meals and Sunday breakfast will be served in the Meeting House Dining Area. Munchies from our traditional “grazing table” are provided by us. We have been assigned Gibbes House and the Chapel Line Cabins. Gibbes House has ten rooms and is where we will be holding many of our events. The Chapel Line Cabins are a short walk to Gibbes House. If you have mobility issues you will be assigned a first floor room in Gibbes House.
