A DANCE WITH GOD
Wednesday - Sunday
June 3 - 7, 2009
to the monastic rhythms of each day
and to the rhythms of your own breath.
We will pray, entering the mystery and power of the body through yoga, meditation, Taizé chant, and of course, chanting with the monks.
We will pray sequences of postures to songs of Love, Longing, and Presence. Yoga aligns body with spirit, taps our gifts of core strength, integration and ground, is inwardly focused while quietly expressive or exuberant. Above all it is accessible to every body; no previous experience necessary. Come explore these dances of love as we approach Trinity Sunday.
Taizé Chant and body prayer in the beautiful, resonant chapel.
Quiet meditation resting in God, that God may rest in us.
$425 includes private room and meals prepared by a chef from the Culinary Institute of America.
Holy Cross Monastery, nestled on 26 magnificent acres on the banks of the Hudson River, is home to an open-hearted Episcopal Benedictine Community. Their cook is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. This is a beautiful place to enter a time of prayer, reflection, renewal, and recreation.
We will enjoy a silent walk around the lake at John Burroughs Sanctuary nearby.
