THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS

July 21 – July 27
Non-refundable deposit to reserve: $100 / Full cost including deposit: $575

The retreat will explore the psychological, physical and religious effects of forgiveness on individuals and within relationships.  Forgiveness has a real potential for personal and spiritual transformation.  It is the central virtue in many of the world’s great religions.  We will examine the role that forgiveness can play in alleviating anger and grief and the physical, mental and spiritual benefits that come with forgiveness.  We will look at people like Thich Nhat Hanh, Elie Wiesel, Thomas Moore and Jesus who have taught the benefits of forgiveness as well as the hidden costs of unforgiveness.

LIVING IN THE PRESENT MOMENT~THE ETERNAL NOW

July 27 – Aug. 2
Non-refundable deposit to reserve: $100 / Full cost including deposit: $575

This retreat will focus on living in the present moment-finding the God who is present in the here and now.  Every moment of life is true miracle.  We cannot realize or fully understand this truth with our minds only.  We can only know it when the mind is still…when we are present, fully and intensely, in the NOW.  Retreatants will be helped to identify the obstacles that hinder the discovery of the richness of God’s life within them.  To regain awareness of being, and to abide in God’s presence within, is truly God’s desire for each of us.

MOVING FROM “PERFECTION” TO WHOLENESS

Aug. 11 – 16

Non-refundable deposit to reserve: $100 / Full cost including deposit: $635

“The human heart can go the length of God,” and will find its fulfillment there.  We will reflect together on what this might mean for us in the lived reality of our times.  Affirming and accepting life’s sacred call to wholeness goes deeper, and moves us beyond rules, regulations, and “how-to’s”.  It requires no “haloes,” but calls for simple but intense love, honesty, and courage.  During our time together we will ponder the depth if this, and hopefully move to wholeness, letting God point the way.
