Embodying our mission of rest, reflection, and renewal, Pathways will again take the month of July as sabbatical time. This means there will be no daily prayers or individual retreats scheduled during the month of July. We will reopen to individual retreats August 1 and daily prayers will resume on August 8.
Renew your body, mind and spirit through practicing Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) in a group. TRE is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. This group is for people who already know and practice TRE and is limited to six participants. Saturday, August 26, 10am - noon Suggested donation: $25-50 Facilitator: Julie Stegelmann
Spending time in nature is known to make us happier, reduce stress and increase our well-being. As we prepare to move from summer into fall, this four-part series will offer us time to wander outdoors as well as experience a harvest of creative spiritual practices. Saturdays, September 9, 16, 23 and 30, 10:00 - 11:30 am Suggested donation: $15-35 for each session Register for the ones you can attend - all four or only one. Facilitator: Dawn Stegelmann, Episcopal priest, spiritual director, seminary professor and retreat leader
During our June Creation Care work time we'll be focusing on removing invasive curly dock from our prairie strips. By removing the seed heads before they become viable, we reduce the capacity of this weed to persist in our current prairies and to spread. Volunteers will work in pairs to cut off the flowering seed heads and treat the stems. If you plan on joining us, let our volunteer coordinator know to expect you by completing this 30 second survey.
Please dress in clothes suitable for outdoor work and bring work gloves, a water bottle, and sun protection. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our volunteer coordinator. In the case of bad weather we will reschedule the work day, so check our website and social media for updates. If you are interested in hearing about volunteer opportunities at Pathways, consider completing our volunteer survey if you haven’t already. It will help us in match you with meaningful work and you’ll get periodic reminders about volunteer events we’re having.
