Three spots are now open for additional retreaters! We are very excited to bring together new and old friends sharing from the heart and soul - Celebrating the Inner Healer and Reverence for all life. With last minute cancellations just in, we are extending reservations to Friday noon.
Now that I've been out and about marketing and prepping, I'm feeling like this is my Thanksgiving celebration. (afterall, it is on the heels of Sukkot - the Harvest Fest in the Jewish tradition and my grateful heart is ever-expanding counting so many blessings each day)
This rain and cold front should prepare a marvelous Fall palette for our enjoyment especially along the last 20 miles to the Grant Retreat near Indiana PA.
With some requests for wheat-free/gluten free dishes, I've tweeked the menu some - adding Polenta, which I had forgotten is such a great Fall complement to the roasted root veggies. With the great Daiya products - offerring grated vegan cheese options I can incorporate the mozzerella version into the corn meal - exciting -- its soy free, very real ingredients -the base is actually tapioca!! Many thanks to the East End Food Coop for their support for our World Vegetarian Day Supper.
You can be sure I will collect some quotes from the participants on their thumbs up dishes worth repeating - and hopefully will have some photos and stories to report here next week. Maybe we'll even vote on the tastiest 'Milk '.
If you aren't with us in person this time, perhaps for welcoming Fall 2011 - at The Peace Farm? Abhai and I took a field trip Sunday to tour and join in on a Sufi program and pot luck -- we had a wonder filled time. It will be a lovely setting for us -- The International Peace Center - was obviously built as a labor of love - and quite in harmony with nature -- It looks southwestern - and the seven bedrooms with private baths are pristine and cozy - the whole center is very welcoming - so - pencil us in Celebrating the Inner Healer Fall 2010 - tentative dates we're researching: September 23 -25 or October14-16 - You heard it here first!! ( and actually with private room space at a premium, early registration is key)
