Blessings, Beauty and Balance

A weekend to celebrate gratitude
Jane Siarny

Geneva, IL

November 17-18 Friday 6:30 pm - Saturday 4:00 pm

Using InterPlay forms, we will dive into the ways we embody gratitude and how we create more of it in our lives. This weekend of workshops (take 1, 2 or all three) will give you the time and space to explore the nature of blessings, how true beauty nourishes our souls, and how we can create more balance in our lives.

We will learn about and experience InterPlay’s forms and tools designed to access the wisdom of our bodies (body, mind, heart and spirit). In the rush of the holiday season, join us to slow down and find balance between hurriedness and contemplation; moving and being still; striving and acceptance.

Joyce Rupp quotes Rumi in her book The Cup of Our Life. “Wherever you place your foot, there rests a blessing.” Rupp goes on to say “Wherever we place our feet—wherever we are—can be a blessing if we are aware of the inherent sacredness and beauty of that place…”

In Melody Beattie’s book Gratitude, she writes “Look closely at the ordinary in your life. While you’re being grateful, don’t forget to express pure sheer gratitude for how beautiful the ordinary really is. We can easily overlook the ordinary and take it for granted. The sun rises and sets, the seasons come and go, and we forget how beautiful and sensational the familiar really is.”
