Events at Cabot Shores

“The world gathers in the beautiful scenes of  Cape Breton.”


Autumn 2014 Events & Workshops



Friday: September 19, 2014, 3-8pm


Cabot Shores is hosting a Harvest of Peace celebration this Friday, September 19!

This evening is for us to gather and celebrate, to enjoy each others’ company, and to further develop and expand our community and connections.  The theme to contemplate now and beyond: what are we harvesting and what are we willing to offer to further the vision of our personal community and society as a whole? 

You are warmly invited to join us for all or part of the festivities at Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort, a gathering place on Cape Breton Island.  Come join us in a guided walk, some group meditation, a bonfire and cook-out; take time to relax with neighbors, friends, and community members.  Open to anyone with an interest in building and supporting community, and especially if you are curious about contemplative practice and ways in which it can enrich your life.  We look forward to seeing you here! 

It’s a potluck, so bring your favorite dish(es) – something to grill, salads, side dishes, healthy beverages, desserts. 

Suggested donation $15 to go to the Good Health Society.

3pm onward       Arrive, settle in.  Go for a hike, swim, paddle

4:30pm                Warrior’s Walk followed by brief sitting & closing chants

6pm                       Potluck cook-out.  Spend time around the fire sharing stories, songs…
