In today’s world, we often keep such busy and complex schedules, it can be challenging to find time to explore and nourish our spiritual lives. Retreats and workshops offer us much needed rest and renewal, and a focused time and safe space to attend to what’s really going on inside us, and attend to God’s presence and movement in our lives. Gathering in community for prayer, reflection and dialogue, we can gain wisdom and practices for living more contemplatively and authentically in our everyday contexts.
