Solstice: The Birth Within—A Retreat Day at Powell House


Thursday, December 21, 2017 - 2:00pm to 8:00pm


524 Pitt Hall Road
Old Chatham , NY
New York


As we head into winter and the coldest months of the year, we welcome and celebrate the imminent return of light. What is the interplay of dark and light in your life, and in the life of the world? What are the spiritual gifts of the dark? Of the light? What is the full spectrum of spiritual light? Join us for a time of spiritual seeking and renewal that includes some activity outdoors (bring weather appropriate clothing), supper, snacks, and a place for you to take a breath during this busy season.

Facilitated by Mary Kay Glazer, a long-time member of NYYM, now lives in Madison WI with her husband Mark Moss. She is a member of Madison Friends Meeting, Northern Yearly Meeting. She has a passion for spiritual formation—the many ways we are shaped by God, and how we respond. Find out more at

After December 10: $100

SPECIAL OFFER: Want to spend the night after this day-long retreat? Stay on through the night at Powell House for an extra $20. Includes a continental breakfast.
