2:00-3:00 pm
Reconnecting with the Land

with Rev. Susannah Currie & Tina Wood

This session will include: checking in with each other, learning a simple song of blessing and walking meditatively throughout the FNCA property, and blessing the land and buildings.


Empty Box Meditation

with Leone Dyer & Carol LeBaron

Guided meditation to bring participants into a Be Now space will allow them to locate within them that emotion (pain, frustration, misunderstanding, lack of power) they wish to open, acknowledge and shift. When this space is recognized, you can make room for what will serve you. Each participant will receive a box with random items before the guided meditation and be encouraged to use the contents of their box to help connect the emotion. Staying in the Be Now space, participants will walk through the FNCA grounds to gather materials representing what they chose to fill this acknowledgment opening with by filling their box. The collected treasure may be used in the healing loom or held onto until they ready to release back onto the FNCA grounds. 


Reconnecting with Each Other

with Rev. Susannah Currie & Rev. Kent Rogers

This session will give us time together in small groups to talk about what draws us to the FNCA and Swedenborgian theology. At 8:00 pm we will gather at the firepit and invite all to join in drumming and chanting to feel the rhythm of the earth within us all.

The Gifts of Solitude, Silence, and Stillness
