The Wisdom House located in Litchfield is offering a series of four programs in January that focus on wellness living, introspection, and rejuvenation.
On Saturday, January 5 from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm guests are invited to welcome 2019 with intention by joining a New Year-themed Self-Care Saturday, designed to clear out the old and welcome the new. Embrace your future with clarity, focus, and a feeling of expansiveness through restorative yoga, guided meditation, journaling, and spirit-lifting laughter. The place of quiet connection you find will let you reflect on and release activities of the last year. Intention-setting activities help guide you gratefully and gracefully into a rejuvenating and wisdom-filled new year. All are welcome. No previous experience necessary. Please bring a journal or small notebook and wear comfortable, stretchy clothing. This program includes lunch and is $60. To register click here.
On Thursday, Jan. 10 from 7 pm to 8 pm the Wisdom House is offering a Literature Discussion Group. The purpose of art is to lay bare the questions that have been concealed by the answers,” James Baldwin wrote. This reading and discussion group will endeavor to lay bare the questions we find in literature, particularly in the contemporary novel. Our first book will be Marilynne Robinson’s Home. In what has been called a Prodigal Son story, we will be able to surface questions of exile, spiritual affliction, grace, and forgiveness. We will choose future works as a group. Bring a notebook for writing, your ideas, and the book we are discussing. Book not included in fee. This discussion group will take place every other Thursday – January 10 & 24, February 7 & 21, March 7 & 21, April 11 & 25. Creating a core group makes for a fulfilling experience, but attendance at each week is not required. Suggested donation at the door: $5 This is a free program, but registration is required.

Finding a Rhythm to Walk in is a contemplative retreat being offered at The Wisdom House from January 11-January 13. This contemplative retreat invites us to connect with the Divine Center deep within us, that which calls to us and to which we may return. Gathered in silence and contemplative practice, we discover a rhythm to walk in these hurried and uncertain times, finding our way home to the Divine Center. During this retreat, we will have the opportunity to experience individual and corporate prayer and meditation, devotional reading, group spiritual reflection, journaling, and handwork. All meals are included. Click here for more information and to register.
On Fridays in January from 5:30 to 6 pm there will be an evening prayer and meditation session. Find out more by calling or emailing Program Director Sherri Reed at (860) 567-3163.
