Honoring the Spirit of the Season

A winter ritual of reflection, reconnection and reverence

Dec. 17, 3-6 pm in-person event in Minneapolis

Amidst the cycles of life, the stillness, cold and dark of winter draw us inward. Winter invites us to rest and reflect deeply, reconnect with the sacred, and remember and recommit to what is most important. For as long as there have been human cultures, we have gathered in community to share stories, meals and creative expression. We gather in ritual to honor our place in the web of life, our loves and losses, and the presence of the sacred. Traditionally, these ritual gatherings venerate significant times in the rhythms of nature and events in the life of cultures. This is certainly true around the winter solstice, holidays and new year. While much of this has been lost amidst the busy-ness and commercialization of the holidays, in these darkened times we need rituals of reconnection now as much as ever.

This gathering will consist of teachings + stories, yoga practice, self-reflection, chanting and communal ritual honoring the year that has passed and the spirit of the season. We will explore themes of love, loss, forgiveness, healing and gratitude in these challenging times.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. As of Dec. 14, there are still 3 spaces available.

To reserve your space, please email [email protected] and send payment ($50-150 sliding scale) via venmo to @vincent-yoga, or via paypal to [email protected]

Once your email and payment are received, Ben will send confirmation and preparatory information via email.

What we’ve been up to…

Posted by on Dec 11, 2012 in Retreats, Travel, Uncategorized | 0 comments

A snippet of our past 2 months.  We’ve been living on the move.

An amazing group of practitioners came together at Camp duNord for our annual retreat.  We practiced, laughed, played in the snow, explored Ayurveda + Yoga, enjoyed massage, fires and food together…Fall Yoga Retreat 2012 = a success!  The next week we hit the road for Colorado + a training with our teacher Rod Stryker.  We nestled into mountain life at Avalanche Ranch (cabins + hot springs = perfect retreat).  We quickly fell into a daily routine of soaking in the hot springs, breakfast, yoga, soak, dinner, sleep.  Upon return, we received our India Visas!  We head to India in January…more details to come of our pilgrimage thru the Himalayan Institute.  And, finally, our completion of the fall harvest.  Our kale, collards + brussel sprouts were so unbelievably patient with us this year and now the freezer is stocked!
