APRIL

April 25-27      Spring Cleanse
An experiential weekend offering tools and resources for cleansing and rejuvenating the whole body
plus the opportunity to try out a nourishing cleanse.

Your body is like a house. Actually, it is the temple you live in, and as such, it requires regular cleaning and, occasionally, a thorough "spring cleansing" to fully function.

Over time, the body builds up toxins from pesticides and other chemicals, pollution, over-indulgences, and body waste. The organs, liver, kidneys, and colon become overtaxed and need to rest and regenerate. The older we get the more wear and tear our bodies take and eventually loose energy and begin to break down. For optimal health and energy, there are many cleansing and detoxification programs that can restore the whole body.

This healing, cleansing retreat is for people at various levels of experience with cleansing. During this weekend you will have the opportunity to:

Enjoy live, nutritious foods and drinks, learning how to prepare them and creating your personal cleansing program;

  • Determine what kind of cleanse will work best for your body and your lifestyle;
  • Learn tools and techniques that clear, cleanse and tone the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies;
  • Reach a deeper understanding of how you can renew, heal, and rejuvenate your whole being.

This retreat is facilitated by Satyena Ananda who has been guiding and teaching cleansing and rejuvenation programs for over 30 years. Her journey in Holistic Education began when she created The Wholistic Program in Boston in 1978. This three-month program was revolutionary in that it allowed participants to go through all the stages of cleansing on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. This program dramatically changed people's lives. Currently, Satyena leads holistic workshops and guides personal retreats and tailored cleanses and transformational programs.

Space is limited to 6 participants. 
Cost: $300; includes room, organic foods and cleanse program. $100 deposit will hold your space. For more information and to register call Starseed at 413-743-0417.  

MAY

May 2-4     The Fire Within: Women's Retreat Weekend
Led by Joanne Lucia Sunny Avenue Arts Studio

"Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames." ~Rumi

Clear your mind and rest your body and spirit. Take a moment to contemplate your path, relationships, obstacles and the choices you are making in your life. Through stillness, quiet contemplation and shared community you may find answers that were unknown to you. Insights and a deeper awareness may be discovered through journaling, meditation and introspective experiences in nature. Celebrate and honor your fire and passion.

For more details contact Joanne at 413 695-3312 or email sunavestudio@yahoo.com. www.sunavestudio.com

May 4     May Day Prayers for the Earth and for the People of the Earth
12:00-2:30pm
May day is one of our most favorite celebrations.
On this day we write our prayers for the Earth and the people of the Earth onto rainbow ribbons and ceremonially walk with them in the Peace Labyrinth. We commit our prayers to the land and to the winds, tying our ribbons on the Maypoles. Here they will fly until May Day of next year.
Potluck vegetarian lunch to follow ceremony.
