New Year’s ReVolutions
Saturday, January 24th, 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM
A free storytelling/ writing “playshop” – with a virtual costume party – and potluck lunch
Why do the New Year’s resolutions we make each year usually fall by the wayside before January is even over? Could it be because we “resolve” to do things we believe we “should” do, or that other people tell us we should do, rather than what we really want to do?
One of the definitions of “revolution” is “a sudden, complete or marked change in something”. So in this playshop, we are going to make New Year’s revolutions by imagining and envisioning the kind of life we would like to have in the coming year, and the kind of person we would like to be.
In addition to short writing exercises with prompts, we will do this by having a virtual costume party. You don’t need to wear or create an actual costume (tho’ you can if you want to), but we will envision and then describe something we might wear in our ideal life. Without limits. Without worrying about whether it makes sense, whether we think it’s attainable, or something we shouldn’t do, or how we would do it. After all – we’re just playing. It’s just make-believe.
Rae Markus, counselor, spiritual director and writer/poet, will facilitate.
Labyrinth Walks & Quadratos
Join us 7-9pm in the Social Hall on the following dates.
2015 Labyrinth Schedule:
Friday, March 20, 2015—Vernal Equinox Labyrinth Walk - Third Path: How do we receive joy?
Saturday, June 20, 2015—Summer Solstice Labyrinth Walk - Fourth Path: How do we mature in service?
A Labyrinth is a sacred path, a pilgrimage. A chance to meditate and commune with the Divine. This ancient tool of transformation has only one path, unlike a maze, and allows the walker to make their way to the center, releasing that which does not serve. The walker will fill up and allow illumination at the center, before journeying outward with a deeper sense of union and understanding of The Sacred.
The Labyrinth at FCCNH is a Chartres design Labyrinth. One of the most famous examples of a Chartres Labyrinth is at Chartres Cathedral in The Loire Valley, France. Our Chartres is 36 feet in diameter and allows for numerous walkers to journey, all at the same time. A Labyrinth walk is extremely personal to the walker, and as such, no one can tell you how to 'do' a labyrinth, merely give suggestions for the road. All are always welcome.
