Our Guest Leaders

Dancing the Alchemy of Presence & Possibility
Alchemy – Magic – Mystery – Spirit.

There are many words to describe the process whereby our lives are transformed through a power which is both within us and beyond us. And ultimately words can only take us so far. They are important, but at the same time limited. What we seek will take us beyond words. Through presence and connection, embodiment and vulnerability, solitude and community, movement and stillness, we begin to open ourselves to the great Mystery which bubbles up in us and in the world. It cannot and will not be contained, but it most certainly can be experienced – an unbridled well of energy, joy, and life from which we are invited to drink. Join us for a week of singing and dancing, praying and playing, sharing and connecting. Come, come, whoever you are . . . the promise of transformation awaits!
