A series of monthly Friday afternoon meditations at Stonehaven:

SOUL-GARDENERS CIRCLE…  a year with the lotus

We have become an urbanized consumer culture that lives increasingly hooked and dependent upon technology and mechanization.

Stonehaven is a suburban property in Main Line Philadelphia dedicated to thoughtful contemplative dialogue. It is a place where the landscaped garden, the quiet stream, and the untamable forest offers you space to slow down and listen to your own life speak.The quiet wisdom that comes from rural life and religious or indigenous practice that plants us in the soil of the earth and her peoples, is often run over in the frenetic pace of our lives.

This following season we will be offering different programs – a few hours, a full day or weekend retreats considering these questions:

Monthly Friday afternoon

Circle Conversations

Aug 31, Sept 28, Nov 30

Have you ever marveled at the beauty of the lotus plant, or wondered why it is considered sacred in so many of the world’s religions? Throughout this year we will showcase one lotus plant that is growing here at Stonehaven. Throughout the last decade of my life, it has taught me much about living life from the bottom-up, from the inside-out, and the upside-down. All the muck and mire at the bottom of the pond is the place from where this plant flourishes. Each season will bring new reflection and fresh wisdom as we pay attention to the gifts of nature and awaken the divine within our individual and communal souls.

Come join us for silent reflection and personal meditation in the garden, and group conversation in a Circle.

There is no set charge for this event, but donations are gratefully accepted towards the work of Stonehaven.

Please be sure to register in advance via email ckortsch@gmail or through Meet-Up – Soul Gardeners Circle as there is a limit of  14 for each group.

    It was a unique experience that I enjoyed very much. I look forward to participating again. I learned so much and it was very relaxing.
