This year on Thanksgiving morning, there will be a special holiday offering of Refuge. We’ll gather, move, sit, walk and move again in cycles in the spirit of the honoring the grace in our lives.

Turkey, stuffing, and gravy along with utensils, plates, paper goods, and cups will be provided. There will also be water and tea available.

What to bring:

  • A cushion or mat for the sitting meditation
  • A water bottle
  • A Thanksgiving dish to share if you’re staying for the potluck (we will not have access to the kitchen so please wrap your dish well and bring it in an insulated container if it needs to stay cool or warm)
  • A story of grace in your life to share

Understanding that Thanksgiving is a family holiday, we would like to make this special offering accessible for parents and children to attend. We ask that the ritual space of Refuge be honored through the sitting, walking and moving meditation cycles. If your child(ren) would have a difficult time with this request please consider joining us after the class for the potluck shortly after 2 pm.

Many hands make light work.  If you feel moved to help us set the space and/or and clean up please contact Chelsea.

*For those who are not able to attend and have asked to be able to donate, there is a GoFundMe page set up to receive donations
