About the Event
We are most certainly
Waking up to A new normal
Let’s begin again ….
life has changed .. we have changed … our world has changed …
the ground beneath our feet has shifted ….
and yet … maybe in some ways, we are simply awakening to what was and always has been true …..
As we journey on … what might it be like to take a little time out to listen …. To listen to our own inner voices, to the “what is” of our lives, and to the Divine within us and within all of creation?
This weekend retreat will offer space for listening and conversation and reflection. A space to remember together the joys and the sorrows of all we have lived in these past months. A time to reflect on what it might mean to move forward into all of the “not knowing” with some intention and with a sense of God’s/Love’s presence, in us, and with us.
The following topics will guide our conversations and reflection times:
· Beginning again ….
· Everything begins with listening …
· Waking up to “what is” & Practicing Presence (in the midst of fear & confusion)
· Radical Compassion for self and for all
· How might this be for our healing & transformation
· Practices for the journey
Please consider joining me in this time of conversation and reflection. There will be all kinds of freedom to make this retreat exactly what you need it to be for you. The circle will be facilitated in a way that will feel easy and safe and you are most welcome to come just as you are ….
There will be space for personal spiritual direction upon request (with added cost).
