Threshold – Stowel Lake Farm Retreat
with Joanne Winstanley and Bettina Rothe
August 30 to September 2, 2018
Salt Spring Island, BC
A threshold is a place of potential; a delineation between one set of conditions and another. A place to gather resources. A cusp or an edge we may not have approached, or crossed over, until now.
As we move through time, we may find that each moment or new season requires something different from us. Even in times of relative stability, the world is poised to offer surprises. As citizens of a changing world, we may find ourselves being called to ‘step up,’ change course, learn new skills and perspectives, or take creative action that we haven’t taken before.
In this year’s retreat we’ll engage with the 5Rhythms® movement practice, ritual, and meditation to investigate this place of potential. We’ll explore where we may be ready to step beyond our own edges and we’ll practice moving, with purpose and presence, from awareness into action.
Supported by the land, guided by the 5Rhythms maps (Waves and Heartbeat) and accompanied by a committed group of dancers, we’ll gather and embody the resources we need to step into the fall.
Previous 5Rhythms® experience is recommended, but not required. If you are tracking hours for the 5Rhythms® teacher path, this retreat counts for 1 day of Heartbeat and 2.5 days of Waves practice.
All rates include tuition for the workshop, 3 nights of accommodation, and 9 locally grown organic meals. Vegetables grown on the farm are used whenever possible, and meals are vegetarian with the exception of a salmon dinner on Friday evening. The workshop starts with dinner on Thursday evening, and completes on Sunday afternoon at 4:30 PM.
Rooms are assigned on a first come, first served basis. We do recommend signing up early – this popular annual retreat fills up fast!
