June 2018 felt very distant when we booked this retreat in the fall of 2016. Now the time for dancing, rest and renewal is rapidly approaching!
INVITATION: Please join us at the Women’s Rivendell Circle Dance Retreat at Rivendell Retreat Centre (http://www.rivendellretreat.org/) on Bowen Island from June 1-3, 2018. The Circle Dance Retreat is in a very special locale at the Rivendell Retreat Centre which encourages time for self and in nature, time in community and service to others. There’ll be scheduled time to dance with 3 or 4 facilitators in sacred space and time for self in an ambiance of quiet away from city life and distractions. Rivendell is a beautiful location with wonderful energy. The centre is atop a hill overlooking mountains, forest and ocean with nature paths, a separate sanctuary building with view of the forest and an outdoor labyrinth. If you wish to extend your stay a few hours by arriving on the Island (not Rivendell Retreat Centre) early or staying later, there are some quaint shops to explore in Snug Cove and some beautiful hikes on the island too.
FOOD: You will be lovingly nourished with delicious vegetarian meals and snacks prepared by Darlene. If you have special dietary needs, there is space on the registration form to note them.
COST: $250 includes dance program, accommodation, meals and snacks (ferry cost extra). Most participants will be sharing a room (separate beds) with one other person.
PLEASE NOTE: HELP WITH MEALS & CLEAN-UP ETC. IS A REQUIRED SERVICE AT THIS RETREAT: For service to others, we will each give our loving attention to a meal prep shift, a meal clean up shift as well as lending a hand where needed during the retreat. In addition, before our departure on Sunday, participants will clean/prepare their rooms for the next guests, return furniture in the shared spaces to its rightful place and clean the common spaces.
This retreat information is being sent to those who attended recent previous Rivendell Circle Dance Retreats as well as facilitators of dance circles who can share the information locally.
If you know anyone, experienced or not, who has an interest and may not have access to the information, please feel free to share it with them.
