    Byzantine Iconography is a highly structured and disciplined art form which combines prayer and painting techniques to create serene images of Christ, Mary, the angels, and the saints following centuries old guidelines. Peter Pearson has been studying and painting icons for nearly fifty years and teaching others to do so for half that time. He has authored three books on the subject and has painted hundreds of icons for churches, monasteries, seminaries, convents, and individuals all over the world. Peter's students number in the thousands and each has walked away with an icon of their very own. No previous experience or natural talent is required. We paint, pray, and follow the simple step-by-step instructions. Peter invites you to journey with him as you paint the image of Our Lady of Glastonbury.

    February 13, 2020  2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

    "St. Vincent"
    February 13, 2020 2:30pm (matinee) PG-13 1hr 42 min

    Vincent is an old Vietnam vet whose stubbornly hedonistic ways have left him without money or a future. Things change when his new next-door neighbor's son, Oliver, needs a babysitter and Vince is willing enough for a fee. From that self-serving act, an unexpected friendship forms as Vincent and Oliver find so much of each other's needs through each other. As Vincent mentors Oliver in street survival and other worldly ways, Oliver begins to see more in the old man than just his foibles. When Vincent’s life takes a turn for the worse, they both find the best in each other, surprising all those around them.

    Discussion will follow the movie. Tea, coffee and snacks will be served. We invite you to come early with friends and bring a sandwich. Glastonbury Abbey holds the appropriate movie site licensing to show all films. Donations are gratefully accepted.

    Facilitators: Katherine Becker was involved in public education for 38 years as an English teacher and as a high school guidance counselor. Susan (Bonnie) Delay was a senior research analyst at Boston College’s Institute for Scientific Research for 45 years.

  • Reiki Level 1: Caregivers Also Need Care

    February 15, 2020  9:30 am - 4:30 pm
    Glastonbury Abbey, 16 Hull St, Hingham, MA 02043, USA

    Denise Patts, Reiki Master Teacher
    Caregivers often need ways to help themselves while they continue to serve their loved ones; Caregivers are those among us who offer service in a wide variety of settings: teachers, medical professionals, spouses,

    parents, counselors, adult children. These and countless others GIVE of themselves and often do not replenish their energy until the 'well runs dry'. If you are or know someone who is a caregiver, come and fill your well.

    Benefits of Reiki:
     Lower Stress/Reduce Anxiety
     Help to Lower Blood Pressure
     Bring a Sense of Calm and Peace
     Reduce Pain and Swelling
     Balance Energy Levels

    What is Reiki? A simple explanation - Reiki is an ancient technique for reducing stress, promoting relaxation and encouraging the body into a balanced state of well-being. Reiki comes from two Japanese words: Rei - which means “Universal Life” and Ki - which means “Energy”. Reiki is a subtle and effective form of energy work using this life force energy. It can be used for general wellness as well as for specific issues and is a compliment to other wellness programs.

    Suggested donation: $100 (Reiki 1 Certificate and lunch included)
