You're invited to pause and embody the Advent season through the spiritual practices of yoga and contemplation. Our Advent Yoga day retreat will be based on the book Fully Human, Fully Divine: An Advent Devotional for the Whole Self and facilitated by the author. Our time will include a gentle (beginner-friendly) floor-based yoga session, times of reflective journaling, and creative contemplation. The yoga postures will be restful and refreshing and designed to help you slow down and savor this season!
This retreat will encourage you to embrace the experience of the Advent season fully, with your whole self, and remember that Jesus showed us what it meant to be both fully human and fully divine. During a season that can often become stressful and overwhelming, we are rarely permitted time to be present in our own bodies. We forget that our bodies are blessed and consecrated. Take time to be present in your body and join us for this special event as we await the birth of the Christ Child, the embodiment of God’s presence in our midst.
Longing for more than just a sampling of this Advent experience? If you'd like to use the devotional book in its entirety this Advent season, purchase a copy wherever you buy books or at one of these links. Bring your book to be signed by Whitney. Signed copies of Fully Human, Fully Divine: An Advent Devotional for the Whole Self will be available on the day of our retreat (Cash, Check or Venmo) at $18 each.
Dress comfortably. Bring your yoga mat and a yoga blanket (or another firm blanket), a journal, and a pen/pencil.
