A FIVE-DAY JOURNEY THROUGH HEALING

Many of us are among the walking wounded. Sometimes we know it; oftentimes, we don’t. We just know that we feel driven, drained, and/or chronically distracted, all of which are symptoms of unhealed, unacknowledged, or under-healed pain.

THE HOLY TRINITY AS SPIRITUAL PRACTICE

What can the Jesus story teach us about how to meet challenges like climate change, racism, environmental degradation, accelerating species extinctions, pollution, and the growing political polarization in our country? We look out onto a suffering world and know that things must change, but are we willing to be changed?

YOUR FACE I SEEK, O GOD, HIDE NOT YOUR FACE FROM ME (PS.27): PERSONAL EXPRESSION THROUGH PRAYER AND ART

The psalms poignantly speak about God and our yearning for intimate relationship in the midst of all of life’s circumstances. Through simple non-representational art activities, personal reflection time and communal sharing for those who wish, this art retreat focuses on the imagery of the psalms as entrance into ever deepening prayer. No artistic talent or experience is required.

Creative Expression

We cannot create knowledge without acting. The focus of this action is (a) to transform the world, (b) to establish interdependent relationships with human beings, with the cosmos and with God.
