Current Spirituality Calendar:

  • Mondays – Morning Mantras that provide a single thought/affirmation for Women’s Spirituality to use as a touchstone throughout that day and week. The mantra is placed in the format of a digital image that includes a beautiful photo, typically a landscape. With the exception of the month of May when the images are all closeups of flowers as so many of our congregations host their Flower Communion during that month I thought it would be nice to make that as the offering here too.
  • Thursdays – A prayer, blessing or meditation. Video and/or audio formats.
  • Sundays – Twinkle offers a spiritual/worship message on Sundays. 
  • Monthly – Women’s Minerva Potluck Gathering + Ritual (Register for this event here: TwinkleManning@gmail.com) 
  • Recurring Hygge events, seasonal gatherings, pulpit supply and worship services, as well as Moment Meditations on Twinkle’s Ministry Channel.

We also post links to songs, chants, meditations and intentionally lift up the work of other inspirational and transformational spiritual leaders. Posts appear on our Facebook pages.

2022 Events Calendar will continue to be updated throughout the year!! Because…Covid19…

Twinkle’s Lancey Street House 2015-2021

In 2021 we bid farewell to our Lancey Street retreat center. The location served us well for almost seven years.

It was time to move full-time to our Lake-side retreat locations. One in Rockwood and one in the heart of Kineo.
