A Morning Apart for Reflection.

Tickets are required! Purchase them HERE.

“Open your eyes and see, open your mouth and taste.” (a portion of Psalm 34:8 The Message Translation).

Leaders:
• Sally Cowal, proprietor of Muse Vineyards (along with her spouse Robert Muse) since 2003.
• Rev. Anne Findlay-Chamberlain, pastor at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, Woodstock, VA

We live in a fast-paced world where time is of the essence, food is delivered at drive-through windows, and the words “fast” and “food” run together as we speed about our lives. We fast-forward through our days without taking the time to stop and savor what is happening right here and right now. When we take time to be attentive, “we discover the interconnectedness between spiritual and material realities: we learn to see the extraordinary in the ordinary.” (Gisela Kreglinger)

This morning apart provides an alternative pace in a place of beauty where we will have an opportunity to reflect on the deepest parts of ourselves as we:
• Get to know each other
• Experience walking amidst the vines in this season of the year (we will walk a short distance, and stand for up to one hour)
• Discover the importance of terroir – the role of soil, topography, and climate that influence the unique tastes and flavors of each wine
• Learn about wine-tasting in the tasting room
• Taste and savor several different wines
• Share our reflections

Tickets include a light continental breakfast and wine tasting.

Join us on a guided hike of Seven Bends State Park, less than a mile from the entrance to Muse Vineyards guided by David V. Brotman, Executive Director of the Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River.

Tickets are FREE, but required. Register HERE.

The hike will be about 2 hours in length, mostly in shade, and of easy to moderate difficulty. (There are some moderately steep hills.) The group will stay together for a wide range of nature interpretations and will see a few areas of historical and cultural significance. We recommend you wear hiking shoes and bring water. We will be safe distancing among groups.

Your guide will be David V. Brotman, Executive Director of the Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River, with whom we are proud to partner on this program. Their mission is to keep the North Fork of the Shenandoah River clean, healthy, and beautiful through advocacy, community action, education, and science. David has broad experience in environmental fieldwork, business, conflict resolution, and education. Times spent in the Shenandoah Valley as a boy and young man — camping, hiking, fishing, and canoeing — are the very roots of his environmental interests and his love of nature. David is a natural public educator and has taught all age groups in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. Subjects have included Chesapeake Bay ecology, Wild Edibles, and many more. In Yellowstone NP, he trained citizen scientists in field methods.
