Men of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta gather spaciously for their annual Fall Retreat at The Mountain. Fresh air, open vistas, hiking, time in nature and brotherhood! This weekend promises to be an enjoyable time. The Mountain is following all best practices for keeping our guests healthy during this time. Please see our posting on additional health measures or feel free to reach out to The Mountain directly with any questions or concerns.
To "retreat" in Shamanism is to give yourself the opportunity to become fully immersed in growing your relationship with Great Spirit in order to replenish, renew and remember just how strong of a connection you have with the Divine Nature of the Universe.
Join us on The Mountain the week before our Thanksgiving program. Several package options are available for stays ranging from just the weekend to a full week stay-over to join in our Thanksgiving gathering. This is a chance to get out and give back this year. We plan to gather in the spirit of service towards the vision and mission of The Mountain. Renew yourself as we work to build up and renovate The Mountain together for the 2021 season.
The Mountain is hosting a traditional Thanksgiving celebration for family and friends, an annual event since 1979! In addition to a festive and delicious feast on Thursday, our long weekend schedule is filled with fun activities, adventure, and community. Enjoy workshops, evening programs, and arts and crafts. Hardy souls may hike Mountain trails, while many gather around fireplaces for storytelling, playing games, and relaxing. This traditional weekend of blessings and thanks will feature a worship service Sunday morning.
SPECIAL NOTE: Space is limited to 50 people this year.
Please register early if you plan on join us on The Mountain.
Join your GSV siblings to experience meditation/journey visioning focused on practicing gratitude and on gleaning the things we have learned as we have all navigated pandemic, social unrest/awakening, and a charged, divisive political landscape over the
past months. To enhance our sacred space and our time together, we will weave our hearts together on Friday evening along with our Opening Ritual and Heart Circle. We will also create small breakout sessions for further processing and sharing of what we
bring forth through these meditations and other activities.
