Join us for a three-hour mini-retreat during the season of Advent to encounter the wisdom of Mary and the Sacred Feminine during this time of growing darkness.
Our three-hour retreat will be from 9 am - 12 pm Pacific on Saturday, December 4th.
Gather with us for this holy pause in a season filled with rushing and frenzy. Make a commitment to slow down and listen, to wait for the shape of what is ripening within you to emerge into fullness. During our time together, we will engage in meditation, visio divina, song, gentle movement, writing explorations, and small and large group sharing to allow our bodies and hearts to speak with clarity around the season we are in. Mary will be our companion in her various guises, empowering us and summoning us to live into the fullness of who we are.
