Restoring Your Soul: Old First Women's Retreat, Feb 4-5, 2012

Taking care of yourself. Finding time to relax. Sharing with one another. Learning new ways to find God in warm surroundings, a caring community and quiet moments.

These are the themes for Old First’s women’s retreat, which will be held at the Seva Retreat Center in Elkins Park from Sat., Feb 4 (10 am) to Sun., Feb 5 (11 am).

The weekend retreat will include full group activities for getting to know one another better, small group activities for sharing, learning and fellowship, and lots of free time. Small group activities will include:

  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Yoga
  • Healthy eating
  • Coping with aging parents

Seva Retreat Center is nestled in 42 acres of walking trails and gardens. We will dine, lodge and meet in Seva’s Unity House, which has large meeting spaces for our full group, small breakout rooms, a yoga room and a cafeteria. Unity House sleeps up to 84 guests in bright, airy rooms with the option of a private or shared hall bath. Meals will be vegetarian, with an emphasis on organic and locally-grown produce.

Women of all ages are welcome to attend. Please invite your friends! Print out this flyer to give to other women who would benefit from a weekend away this winter!

To register, complete the registration slip and return with a 50% deposit to the church office by November 13, 2011. The church must pay 50% of the reservation cost by late November, so we need to begin collecting the fees immediately. Thanks for your cooperation!

Please note that once we reserve the space at Seva Retreat Center, the church is responsible for the full cost of the reservation. Thus we are unable to provide refunds for cancellations.
