The Gift of Springhouse

- Written by Jenna Bowman, Springhouse Adult Programming Participant -

Springhouse has been a surprising and uplifting gift in my life. I met and experienced Springhouse in late summer of 2018 at an all-day Sacred Dance Retreat. Later, I invited some friends, and the five of us from Raleigh, NC piled in a sedan to travel to the great land of Floyd to dive into The Well Retreat. The time, guidance, and love that goes into preparing material for someone else’s spiritual/self-journey is devotion to making this world a better place, and that is what this community does.

I have been blessed and honored by all the dedication the staff, facilitators, and volunteers put into helping others. This organization has tapped into goodness and is not afraid to smother others who show up with the knowledge - and I love it! I love it so much that it has inspired me and the NC pioneers that joined me at The Well to jump in and make a safe place similar to that which we experienced in Floyd, right here in Raleigh. We have met twice now with the purpose to grow ourselves authentically in community through dance inspired by the introduction of the 5 Rhythms, meditation, and sharing a meal with one another.

I have immense gratitude to my now friends in the Springhouse community for what they have shared with me and for their continued service to others. I send love and peace to you all. In my eyes, the Springhouse community are warriors for a more authentic and emotionally intelligent world, and I will stand beside and fight with them.
