Ourselves, Growing Older with Mary Holscher

May 7 - 9, 2020

We begin Thursday at 1 pm (after lunch) and end Saturday at 2:30 pm (after lunch). Our maximum size, including facilitators, is eleven.  All sessions will be in the Farmhouse.

We will have a spacious structure to continue our solitary and communal exploration of growing older. We’ll have time in silence with ourselves and with nature as means to deepen our reflections. We’ll read poems aloud, as we do every year. And we’ll share thoughts, memories and experiences, and, of course, write poems or short prose pieces to share or not share at each person’s discretion.

We will share delicious, organic meals prepared by Whidbey Institute’s wonderful chef, Christyn Johnson.

This retreat is by invitation only. To learn more, please email [email protected]
