August 24-26, 2012
The labyrinth is a spiritual practice, a safe container, a meditative tool that has profoundly impacted the lives of many people as they journey through this world. Come away for this intentional time of exploring this sacred pattern. We will dive deeper into the experience with times of reflection and spiritual practices such as movement, mandalas and sharing story. This retreat will focus on themes of discerning our life’s path – exploring who we are and what we bring. Questions such as “what is your inner longing?” and “what does your heart desire?” will guide our steps and give us cause for reflection. Treat yourself to this uplifting and inspiring summer getaway in the beautiful Five Oaks setting for the sake of personal expression and spiritual growth.
This retreat will include walking the outdoor labyrinths at Five Oaks as well as our indoor canvas labyrinth. Please pack both outdoor and indoor wear.
