There will be a special opportunity for women (ages 13 years to 90+) to recharge their spiritual batteries during these cold, gloomy days of February by attending a warm, restorative women's gathering at Haddonfield Presbyterian church on Saturday, Feb. 20, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast. Entitled TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF, the program will focus on the importance of leading a balanced life with a focus on self care.
It will be led by three facilitators.
Andra Vasko, a graduate of the College of New Jersey and the Pratt Institute of Brooklyn, NY, is a bereavement counselor with Moorestown Visiting Nurse and Hospice. She has a rich background working with clients in life-changing events, such as bereavement and loss. Andra will address the challenging task for women of setting time aside to care for themselves in the midst of chaos and change.
Rebecca Bryan, a nurse practitioner for 17 years in primary care, an instructor at University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, and a consultant to the Presbyterian Board of Pensions as health faculty for the CREDO conferences for pastors, is the third speaker. She will explore the concept of living an undivided life and will discuss the possibility of being the same person in all places with all the people whom one encounters in life.
Trish Adkins (the Atlantic City Yoga Examiner) and a long-time yoga practitioner and teacher based in South Jersey, will present a session entitled "Rejuvenate with Christian Yoga." Trish believes that yoga nurtures the connection between mind and body, and it soul-enhances the relationship with self, family, and with Christ.
Women of all faiths are invited for this time of warmth and fellowship. A free-will offering will be taken, with proceeds going to St. Wilfrid's Free Medical Clinic in Camden and to Moorestown Visiting Nurse and Hospice.
