May 4, 2007 Healing Retreat, Mantoloking, NJ

Synod of the Northeast PinThose who attended the Spiritual Healing Retreat in Mantoloking NJ were blessed with wonderful weather (blossom time), a lovely group of women, beautiful accommodations and a glorious long beach with no one on it. The theme of the weekend was nephesh meaning breath of life or continuum of life. After enjoying, morning prayer and evening vespers every day, learning liturgical dance, having Reiki and massage, taking long walks on the beach, relaxing in the loft, and walking the labyrinth on the beach, we certainly came away with a new and refreshed continuum of life.

One of our weekend projects was being teamed up to a secret prayer partner. During the craft time we each made a personal mandala or dreamcatcher for them which was later presented on the last day revealing who the prayer-partner was.

You can enjoy the retreat and see the mandalas that were made in a brief 5 minute slideshow that was made for YouTube, just log into http://youtube.com/pwretreat or click the screen to the right.
