Are you tired, restless or looking for respite from your “full speed ahead” life? Retreats are a opportunities to step away from our normal activities, ground ourselves and be with God in spiritual formation, silence, prayer and reflection. We have two retreat offerings in our 2019/2020 program year. One in the fall and the other in the spring. Below for details for both offerings.

At the Meeting Point of Divine and Human Desire
Martin Smith | Episcopal Priest, Author, Spiritual Director and Contemporary Spirituality Teacher
9:30 AM – 3:00 PM | Good Shepherd Episcopal Church
11122 Midway Road, Dallas
Conventional religion has often focused on God’s will, God’s plan and God’s rules. But the mystical core of the gospel is our personal experience of what has been called “the wanting-to-be of God in our lives.” What does it mean to re-imagine the focus of spiritual practice? Where do we understand the connection between God’s love for us and our desire to love God? How do we experience ‘new life’ and the heart of God rather than just obedience?
The Rev. Martin Smith is an Episcopal priest who is well-known throughout the church as an author, spiritual director, and retreat leader particularly in the area of contemplative spirituality. His books include the classic The Word Is Very Near You.
