New literary publication
Starting on May Day, the members of the Sunday evening ELYSEUM writers’ group will begin issuing a small monthly literary publication. It will be called Cynefin (Ku-nev-in), which is a Welsh word that can be translated to “a passionate connection to a particular land.” Each edition will feature fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction written by residents and guests who attend ELYSEUM and other Harbin writing workshops. Look for copies in the Harbin library and restaurant.
Original Summer Theater
Recent visitors to the Harbin garden have seen the beginning of a new addition to this magical place – a wonderful outdoor stage and theater! The opening show will be a summer production of “Only at Harbin,” an original comedy on the unique and humorous side of our retreat center, written and performed by our residents. The show opens June 29, with Saturday evening and Sunday matinees through September 15. Come enjoy this lighthearted romp through the new age on your next visit! Photo gallery
