IT’S A WAY OF LIFE – Oct 19

Keep healthy in body and spirit through integrating physical and spiritual exercises through the study of modern dance in a sacred mode. Six-Session Series Thursday evenings • 7:00–8:30 pm September 14, 21, 28, October 12, 19, 26, 2017 John West, Director of the Valyermo Dancers and workshop facilitator at both St. Andrew’s Abbey and HSRC, offers two series of modern dance classes that integrate both physical and spiritual exercises.

WOMEN AT THE WELL – Nov 14

Presenters: Sr. Chris Machado, SSS and Women at the Well Team Tuesdays • 10:00 am–12:00 noon November 14, December 12, 2017 Our Women at the Well group is beginning this new year with a return to a familiar friend. We are once again using Joyce Rupp’s classic book, “The Cup of Our Life.” The book was used during the first years of Women at the Well, and we would like to revisit it with a new group of women who haven’t had the opportunity to mine its gems. Those who worked on the book before can contribute their wisdom to the group. Our work together each month is based on the material found in the book, and includes quiet reflection time, prayer, sharing in small groups and even a bit of Tai Chi to get our energies balanced and prepared for our time together. The Women at the Well group was founded for women seeking the wisdom and support of other women as well as spiritual growth in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. After the meeting, we gather for lunch in the retreat center dining room. We are always happy to welcome new members! Come and join us around the well! Suggested donation: $10.00 for the meeting and $10.00 for lunch Contact: Sr. Chris at (818) 285-3354
