As we enter the beautiful season of autumn, we are reminded that life is always falling away. In our losses, we often have regrets or feel we’ve made mistakes. This program will focus on nurturing those tender places within us. Self-forgiveness and acceptance are key practices here. This program will provide an opportunity for self-reflection as well as healing for this very important dynamic of the grief cycle.
This workshop will include personal reflection, mindfulness moments and inspired learning. You will leave with tools you can use as you move forward through the changes happening in your life.
$15/Person per Workshop | $25/Couple per Workshop
The Roxborough Arts Council (RoxArts) and Seven Stones Botanical Gardens Cemetery hosted an event at Seven Stones, located at 9635 N. Rampart Range Road in Littleton, Colorado. The event, called Time & Togetherness: An Evening with Art Encounters, was Friday, September 8, from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. Featuring an outdoor art walk and reception, the event allowed guests to enjoy food and drinks and listen to live music as they meandered through the beautiful Seven Stones gardens and appreciated newly placed public sculptures, as well as viewed 2-D and 3-D artwork from local artists. The sculptures are on display as part of Art Encounters, a yearlong outdoor sculpture exhibit provided through Douglas County and made available, in part, with SCFD funds. Twenty-seven sculptures are currently on display in the communities of Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker and Roxborough. RoxArts has organized the sculpture program on behalf of their community for four years and is delighted to have partnered with Seven Stones in 2017 in order to have a total of five new sculptures this year! Iron Horse by Janene DiRico-Cable is located in front of the clock tower in the Roxborough Marketplace. The other four sculptures are installed among the beautiful surroundings at Seven Stones: Tenderness by Reno Carollo, Mask Of The Breath: Self by Kimmerjae Macarus, Novus Grande by Harold Linke, and Shard 1 by Joe Norman.
Community members are encouraged to visit Seven Stones to appreciate the public sculptures in their majestic setting. The Welcome Center at Seven Stones is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the gates are open for visitors from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. Artistic expression is of tremendous importance to the founders of Seven Stones. Using glass, metal and stone in new ways, we’ve developed burial and cremation memorials that integrate light, form and the natural environment. We also incorporate QR codes and videos to bring a new, multidimensional experience to visiting the memorials of family and friends. Seven Stones also is consistently exploring the newest means of environmentally friendly green burial and cremation options.
Art Encounters is an ongoing yearlong outdoor sculpture exhibit designed to promote public interest in art, develop community pride and draw visitors to the retail or civic areas where the artworks are displayed. Through the installation of outdoor sculpture, the program helps spark conversation and encourages thoughtfulness, emotions and creativity. It also establishes public art as an essential part of a vibrant community, allowing the public to experience art, style and expression in many formats.
Thank you to everyone who attended our May 2017 Time and Togetherness. We couldn’t have planned a more beautiful or interesting day, and it all started with the heroes.
Time & Togetherness event at Seven Stones Botanical Gardens Cemetery was anchored by a Bonfils Blood Drive, and the heroes who pledged to save lives didn’t disappoint. In fact it was a huge success, exceeding the expected donations. Thank you to those compassionate individuals who participated!
There were many other activities on this gorgeous Colorado spring day. Yogis kicked off the morning with a vinyasa class led by instructor Barbara Meadows under the shade of our committal structure accompanied by gentle breezes and the peaceful burble of our brook.
Kids who visited got to try their hand at a clay-stamping art activity or learn more about the fascinating lives of bees from the keepers who own the hives at Seven Stones.
Families enjoyed the sunshine with games of cornhole and Giant Jenga, while singer Mindy Sterling performed hit classics.
Guests also toured the beautiful grounds and sampled delicious Senegalese cuisine from the Pikine Grill Food Truck.
It was an amazing opportunity to spend time with family and friends, try new things and do good for the community. Thank you to everyone who shared this rewarding day with us!
