Title: Locating Ourselves: Homecoming in Our Bodies

You may have heard an expression similar to, “coming home to yourself.” What does that mean? What left, and what allowed you to know you came back? This morning we will explore pulling away and homecoming as it relates with the body. During our time together, there will be multiple guided opportunities to sense, move, and land in our bodies.  

*Please note: 

There will be an opportunity to move and be before Sunday’s service in a guided, accessible movement-with-music practice. If you plan to participate, please arrive by 9:30 a.m., wear comfortable clothing, and bring a yoga mat, if you have one. (There will be a few yoga mats and chairs available.) Please contact Michele at michelenierle@gmail.com if you have any questions about the practice.
