News from Faith's Lodge
What's Happening at the Lodge...
Our new meditative labyrinth is almost done. Thanks to the help of Lucy Basler, local resident and grief/transitional guru, we will soon have a new destination on our grounds for guests to visit and connect. “A labyrinth is a walking meditation that can bring about emotional and spiritual transformation,” says Lucy. “There are as many ways to walk the labyrinth as there are people who walk it...there is no right
way or wrong
way.” Final touches include stone placement, mulch and additional benches. Be sure and make this a stop next time you visit the lodge. Click here
if you would like to make a donation towards the labyrinth.
The 2015 Schedule is posted
for programming through September of 2015. Please note that a dedicated SIDS weekend has been added for next September.
Fall 2015 programming and dates will be added in the Spring. As always, private stays are available. Contact Kelly McDyre
to inquire about availability and terms.
October is SIDS, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. Consider lighting a candle on Wednesday, October 15th to be part of the "Waves of Light" recognizing Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.
