RETREAT DESIGN

Enjoy an extended weekend of connecting, reflecting, learning and having fun.

The theme of this year's retreat was inspired by the work of Joanna Macy, 86, a teacher, author and scholar who continues to teach and facilitate workshops.

She created a theoretical framework for personal and social change and a working methodology for its application. She is best known for her group methods, including WORK THAT RECONNECTS, featuring:

  • Opening to Gratitude
  • Honoring the Pain We Carry for the World
  • Seeing with New Eyes

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

√ OPEN SPACE: A way to "Design your own sessions" for deeper conversations, emerging ideas, imagining new projects and synthesis.

√ TALENT SHOW: Music! Dance! Drama! And much, much more as members of our community shares their special gifts on stage.
