Passover and Easter happening together is an auspicious time.  “In the Jewish tradition this week is known as Pesach, as Passover, and in the Christian tradition this day is known as Good Friday, the day of the crucifixion. Before this fateful day Jesus gathered his disciples and they shared a meal together. In this way they celebrated the Passover and Jesus gave his disciples bread and wine to partake of saying “Do this in remembrance of me.” In this act Jesus remembered Moses and the exodus of the Israelites and asked his own disciples to remember him.” – Pir Zia

Emerald Earth Retreat, May 4 – 6
“We will share in practices for cultivating the natural self, exploring the alchemy of the soul’s journey, and orienting more clearly to our unfolding purpose. Through retreat we touch upon our essential self, fresh and spontaneous, and affirm our rootedness in the sacredness of life. This in turn, fulfills a deep calling of the soul, bridging our inner awakening with our sacred task of participating in an earth of beauty.”
