Knitting for Your Soul March 18 – March 20th, 2011
Middlebury Courtyard by Marriott, Middlebury, VT
This weekend workshop will delight your spirit whether a prolific knitter who is new to mindfulness, or an experienced meditator just learning to knit.
Inspired by Tara Jon Manning’s book Mindful Knitting, and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, the Knitting for Your Soul weekend is a time for relaxation, inspiration, and healing from within …and, of course, knitting. We will explore the relationship between knitting and spiritual awareness, finding ways to bring that sense of being present in the moment into everyday life. See how the work of your hands can enrich the world by participating in a group charity knitting project.
We ‘ll begin our days with early morning contemplation & end them by the fire.
