2024 Interfaith Retreat: “Let the Spirit Move You”

March 2 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Let the Spirit Move You!

A day of exploration, creativity and connection!

Jennie Avila, a well-known artist and teacher in the area, begins the day with igniting the ‘Creative Spark’ in a meditative art project. No experience necessary and materials are provided.

In the afternoon, Dr. Lyle Wilson will introduce Wu Ji or Primordial Qigong: the 5 virtues associated with the 5 Elements of Classical Chinese Medicine.  Qigong, pronounced “chi gong,” was developed in China thousands of years ago as part of traditional Chinese medicine. It involves coordinating movement, breathing and meditation, to optimize energy within the body, mind, and spirit, with the goal of improving and maintaining health and well-being.

The day will close with “Listening for the Spirit:  The Poetry of Rumi” with Sara Towe Horsfall, Ph.D, Professor, Sociology, Frederick Community College (Texas Wesleyan University, Rtd.) An opportunity to allow the spirit of poetry to move us in beauty and words.
