53 Mill Street, Westfield, MA 01085 • 413.562.3627
Date:July 9th-11th, 2021.


Retreat begins with 6 p.m. supper on Friday, July 9, and ends with 12 noon lunch on Sunday, July 11.

Scripture tells us that Jesus grew “in age, and grace, and wisdom.”  We too, change as we age and in the process our way of seeing and understanding God also changes.  Each time our God view changes we enter into liminal space and have a great desire to recapture our past way of knowing God.  Growth, however, involves the willingness to stay in the unknown place until something new emerges. This workshop will explore some of those liminal experiences. 


Cost: $305. Includes private room, three meals per day, and access to Genesis' contemplative spaces and the Providence Arboretum. You may book appointments with Genesis Health and Wellness staff for massage, meditation and yoga. 

$100 deposit.
