Fall Equinox: The Arts of Harvesting and Shedding

September 22, 2023 - September 26, 2023

Unleash the transformative power of autumn as you embark on an extraordinary journey of self-discovery and transformation at “The Arts of Harvesting and Shedding,” a soul-enriching Fall Retreat at Limina. While “spring cleaning” is a phrase we all know, the fall is a great time to contemplate what we can harvest and what we can let go of.

🌽 The Harvest: Reflecting and Celebrating 🌽

As pumpkins ripen and the leaves turn vibrant colors, this can be a time to marvel at the fruits of your life and take stock of your life’s harvest. What parts of your life contribute to a sense of well-being, peace and purpose? What brought you great joy in the last year, five years, decade? What are the stories that have shaped you? What parts of your past influence your present life? Taking the time to celebrate and rejoice can provide nourishment for other aspects of our lives.

Part of the harvest involves feasting and celebrating, while also storing resources for the winter. Yet not all that we harvest will serve us in the future.

🍁 Shedding: Assessing and and Letting Go 🍁

Farmers sort their crops, keeping only those that will nourish them through the long cold months of winter. Leaves don’t just fall from the trees, but are separated through a controlled process called abscission. We can bring the same spirit of discernment and purposeful shedding to our lives. Where do you feel a sense of dis-ease or subtle yearnings for something to change? Do you have stuff that has piled up around the house, emotional patterns that hurt you and others, health habits that weigh you down, or fear of change in some aspect of your life? In this retreat we’ll learn the art of purposeful shedding by exploring the spiritual freedom that can come when we learn to let go in our physical lives.

Your “homework” prior to the retreat will include simple reflections on what keeps you from living joyfully and freely. At the retreat we’ll learn practical tools and spiritual practices to support purposeful shedding.

The retreat begins in the evening of Friday September 22nd and concludes on Tuesday September 26th after lunch. Guests may extend their stay one additional night to enjoy the quiet healing of Limina.
