Sabbath time at Springbank

Marijke Gerretsen, CND

As my day for returning to Kingston has come I wish to express my deep gratitude for the three months of Sabbath time I had here at Springbank. It was a time of enrichment, relaxation and creativity. All the input and activities were centered around deepening my awareness of how “Everything is Sacred” and “All is Holy.” I have learned so much and have come to appreciate the concept of “Eco-Spirituality,” how we are all connected and that we are co-creators with God living in harmony and with a deep sense of gratitude with all beings, respecting and honoring all of God’s Creation. My new insights and awareness have touched my heart deeply.

- Springbank surroundings, beautiful and spacious – allowed my heart to grow.

- The ten participants from seven different countries – allowed for deep sharing.

- The sessions and workshops were opportunities of spiritual enrichment.

- The various creative workshops gave me the chance to delve into my creative talent and spirit.

I’m deeply grateful to the Community for this opportunity and for all that I’ve been exposed to during these three months. I return to Kingston exited, refreshed, renewed and deeply enriched. Now it is time to live the experience being ever more mindful that “All is Holy and Sacred.”
