Soul Care: Nurturing the Nurturers A Retreat for Clergy, Religious and Those in Who Minister to Others
Led By: Janet Corso
Fee: $300 (Deposit: $100)
May 10- May 12, 2019
The challenges of being spiritually present to others can sometimes prove exhausting, if not, at times, overwhelming. Burgeoning responsibilities, unrealistic expectations or unexpressed projections can sometimes leave us emotionally and spiritually drained in our ministries and lead to a full crisis of disillusionment, and burnout or sense of growing disengagement and ennui — spiritual brownout. This retreat will explore issues common to those who are dedicated to the soul care of others and focus on the deeper challenges of obedience to listening to where God and our True Selves are inviting us.
