At Shine Restaurant's Gathering Place
2027 13th St, Boulder, CO
Our January 2015 theme is "Vision Retreat" and is inspired by Shine's potion "Snow Drift" which supports your heart & soul to drift and dream. Each Gather this month will be a different Mini "Vision Retreat" to get in touch with our truest guidance from within about who we are being and what we are each creating in the coming year. . For a full write-up of this month's theme, please visit the blog post here.
Sunday, January 4th from 11:15 am to 12:30 pm: Mini "Vision Retreat" Gather #1. The first of four different Vision Retreat Gathers this month to slow down and identify our most heart-and-soul inspired goals and dreams for the upcoming year. Rather than diving like super heroes right into new year's resolutions, to-do's and actions, we'll listen to the quiet voice within for guidance about what is truly important to our most real and beautiful selves. It is from this place that we make more than just plans for our year, we take spiritually inspired action.
More about Gathers...
Weekly Sunday Gathers are sacred events to connect with our divine selves, with each other and with something larger that connects us all. We do this through guided meditation, song, silence, meaningful ceremonies or activities, thoughtful time for prayer and blessing, and we also bring in guest speakers for once-monthly learning talks. After our Gather, we enjoy each other's company and conversation over yummy brunch in the Shine Restaurant.
The Gather itself starts at 11:15 am and goes to 12:30 pm. A donation amount of your choice is greatly appreciated. When you arrive at Shine, head to the back room which is the Gathering Place, and that's where you'll find Sacred House. Seating is provided, or bring a pillow if you like to sit on the floor. Dress is casual and comfortable.
After the Gather we head out into the restaurant to socialize and eat together from Shine's delicious brunch menu. The charge for brunch is based on what you pick from the menu! Shine offers local, organic, holistic comfort food made from the heart, and they also make these amazing, magical non-alcoholic potions that are yummy and good for your soul. They work directly with farmers and host numerous events that support community. Their goal: When you support Shine, you support local community. Here's the link to view Shine's brunch menu, and here's a link to the page on their site that talks about the heart and soul behind their food & drink.
AND, there is also a morning yoga class at Shine at 10:00 am, before our Gather - with wonderful instructor Liz Clough. If you want, you can do the triple play - come for yoga, then the Gather, then brunch!
