SPRINGTIME PETITE RETREAT

For those yearning to get away, but can’t devote an entire week, we invite you to discover the liberating experience of time away with God. There will be brief times of optional prayer, an opportunity for optional spiritual direction, and extended periods of silence, rest and allowing the resplendent, spring grounds of Genesis to nurture you.

THE PRESENCE PROCESS - THE UNFOLDING OF PRESENT MOMENT AWARENESS AND EMOTIONAL INTEGRATION: A BOOK STUDY

Why is it so difficult to respond consciously when we are upset? Why do we instead resort to hurtful, repetitive, unconscious, reactive behaviors?

If you’d like the answers to these questions and are ready to begin a journey to conscious emotional response, join us this Spring for the first of a two-part facilitated series in which we explore the background of The Presence Process and overview the 10-week Presence Process Experience. This will prepare you to self-facilitate through the process over the summer and/or join us in the Fall for a shared group experience of that process.

SEARCHING FOR A LOVING HIGHER POWER THROUGH 12 STEP EXPERIENCES

Life changing spiritual experiences can happen in a moment or over time, in either event they can lead to a spiritual awakening. 12 Step programs of recovery invite us to seek a relationship with a loving Higher Power of our own choosing and understanding.

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. In this five-day retreat, Betty Hill Crowson will outline a “process” for identifying, moving through, and recovering from these inner wounds of ours.

Do What I Can
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain: If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain.
— Emily Dickinson
