9:00 am – 5:30 pm
in Boulder, CO
Guided by Mary Marsden and Jennie Gershater Lopez
The dark days and long nights of winter offer a quiet, fertile space to turn inward and tend our inner fire, our inner knowing. We invite you to gather with us around a central hearth to blow life into the sleeping embers of your own deep knowing that’s held in your heart & body.
We will weave practices that include imagery, poetry, dance/movement, writing, quiet reflection and Truth Telling Council to remember together.
What do you know in your bones?
What do you love?
What sparks your fire?
Only you know, even if you have forgotten.
You will get to know both what dampens and what liberates & feeds your inner fire. We invite you to circle with us, to reach inside yourself, and risk remembering. During our time together we’ll listen keenly to hear, “How do I live this fire, this knowing, into my life?”
We’ll share a potluck lunch together.
Sliding Scale Fee: $175 – $125.
An Integration Session Offer: After our day together, Jennie and Mary will be available to support you to tend your inner fire into your day to day life. Schedule with either Mary or Jennie before January 15th and we’ll discount your 90-minute session to $100.
