A DAY OF STORY, SYMBOLISM, YOGA AND CRAFT
Saturday May 27th
10 AM - 5 PM
Come on a day long retreat at the beautiful and bountiful Milkweed Farm homestead in Brunswick, ME. Madelyn SS and Lucretia Woodruff will lead you on a mythical journey weaving together sandal making, story, yoga, embodiment and ritual. It is through our feet that we have the capacity to ground our intentions and bring our desires into being. One step at a time.
Our footwear can be a powerful symbol for the transformation of the soul.
Madelyn is a story teller whose passion for sandal making lead her to discover that there are Cinderella stories from all around the world. She will tell one of these stories by heart and you will get to explore the symbolism and power of shoes with Madelyn's guidance.
Lucretia Woodruff is a farmer, yogi and a mother of 4 who has been teaching yoga for over 20 years. She draws on her experience as a yoga instructor with a deep connection to the earth through her farming practices to ground our capacity to enjoy a life filled with meaningful work and play.
Madelyn draws on song, meditations, movement and writing prompts and group sharing to delve into the symbols and meaning in our own lives. You will leave with an understanding of how to use symbols in your day to day life to feel a greater sense of connection, meaning and magic in what used to be mundane details!
Each step of sandal making has intention and meaning. You will get to make a pair of sandals that is symbolic of your unique journey in life.
