Our True Colors Meditation
& Woodland Reunion with Marlow Shami
Saturday, October 20 ~ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
White Memorial Conservation Center
Autumn, the season of transition,
is a perfect time for reflection.
What is it that we are grateful for?
How are we growing now to become our future?
Are there any habits you wish to stop; thought patterns
you would like to understand or modify; relationships to attend to?
We are like the leaves on the mighty trees gracing White Memorial's wildlife
sanctuary. Weather conditions cue the deciduous trees to halt their process
of photosynthesis and like magic, POP! … the trees reveal their mantle's
true colors: golden, red, orange, brown, purple, maroon. Leaves tumble
gracefully within the fingers of the cool autumn breeze eventually
recycling themselves within earth's fertile community.
With heartfelt contemplation, we too will rediscover
our true colors when we make the time to ask our
questions then listen with an open heart and mind.
Enjoy a special guided meditation designed for this important
season in our life, then embark on a quiet woodland reunion where Marlow
will provide a simple nature activity to help you on your healing journey.
Bring a mat (or sit on a chair) for meditation.
Dress for the weather.
Please do not wear fragrances as some
attendees have chemical sensitivities.
10:00 am - 12:00 pm, Meet in the A. B. Ceder Room.
Members: FREE, Non-members: $5.00.
Pre-registration and pre-payment are required.

Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center
A meditative and community experience...
Drumming provides the perfect focus for a meditative experience.
Each gathering starts with the setting of our intentions for the session,
flows into using a chant with drumming to center the group,
and creates the energy of community. Drum rhythms for the use of
personal meditation and quieting the mind will also be explored.
Participants may bring any type of hand drum – i.e. djembes, bohrans,
frame drums, Native American drums – or they may use one
of the drums or rhythm instruments that will be available.
Program held in Marie Louise Carriage House.
Graduate of the Women's Leadership Institute at Hartford Seminary;
organist at the Church of Christ Congregational in Goshen, CT; ling time
experience playing African drums and rhythms and drumming
programs at Wisdom House. Susan has a background of sharing
her belief that all drumming is spiritual.
