Washington Aldermarsh Retreat
Welcome to our first retreat at Aldermarsh, on Whidbey Island. We have heard glowing reports on Aldermarsh for many years, and finally will visit this sacred space in Marsh.
Aldermarsh is both a beautiful wetlands and a human-created space where community, collaboration and sustainability thrive. Aldermarsh is dedicated to educate and inspire spirit and soul-based stewards of the Earth. We host programs and retreats for individuals, groups, and organizations who share our commitment to deeply listen to and steward Earth and human communities in sustainable ways. All who come to Aldermarsh become part of the expression and co-evolution of this environment and contribute to an energy that nourishes this community for future generations
The theme of this retreat will be Integrity: Being YourSelf. Many of us learn to hide our true selves behind an assortment of masks and facades, trying to be whoever is needed to gain approval. We also hide our true feelings and do not allow ourselves to express ourselves. Most importantly, fear has us hide the Sacred Self, our most beautiful, powerful essential nature. We will explore this theme and invite us out into the full expression of our true nature.
Please plan on arriving any time after 3pm on Friday. We will have a gentle, meditative yoga class at 5:30 for those who can make it by then. IF not, try to arrive for the dinner at 7pm, followed by meditation, intros, and sacred circle. We finish by 1pm on Sunday.
What else will we do
Besides twice-daily yoga, we will do some hiking in beautiful, bug-free forests. We will do some breath and meditation playshops, as well as kirtan (call and response chant-song) to help us connect on all levels.
Aldermarsh is managed by a volunteer-led nonprofit organization. Our inspiration and guidance comes from the spirits of the land, our hearts, and our community. Community support is essential for the long-term sustainability of Aldermarsh
