Don't miss our "Gifts of Winter" retreat next Saturday, January 14, with Amy Kulesa. "In winter we can mirror the rhythm of nature and go within our own spirits in stillness, to reflect on what is incubating, what is awaiting birth."
Join us from the comfort of your home for our virtual Epiphany retreat on Friday, guided by gifted veteran retreat presenter, Gordon Creamer. During our gathering we will consider information about the Magi and their legacy while applying the gift of their star-inspired journey to each participant’s respective story. Moreover, there will be opportunities to engage in meditation, prayer, and other meaningful exercises for a deeper appreciation of how the Magi offer a unique spiritual treasure to our perennial celebration of Christmas.
