Workshops and Retreats
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.

WALKING WITH OTHERS THROUGH GRIEF
Grief can deeply affect all people – and demands attention to move toward healing. Those who deal with spiritual issues in people’s lives notice widespread effects of unprocessed grief in our culture. Using an interactive format based on grief research, we will delve into myths and facts, signs of ‘normal’ and complicated grief, and also discuss how to accompany others through seasons of grief as spiritual companions.
