Sharing Stories, Changing Lives
26 September 2014 – 30 September 2014
The retreat begins on Sunday, Sept 28th with supper and concludes with breakfast on Tuesday Sept 30th. There will be spiritual practice in the chapel in the mornings and a Sacred Pause in the evenings. Between is ample time to nourish your body, soul and spirit through things like taking a walk, reading, conversation, solitude, spiritual direction and healing sessions, walking the labyrinth, quiet time, creative time and/or napping.
This special retreat offering includes meals and accommodation and – while spaces last – healing and spiritual direction sessions.
At Western Women’s Conference 2014, Ann Mortifee will share stories from her life and work that inspire others to access their own souls innate wisdom. Ever since she was a young girl, Ann has been beguiled by a persistent yearning to explore and engage in the mystery of life.
With a life’s work that has led to her being recognized in her appointment to membership in the prestigious Order of Canada, Ann Mortifee is considered by many to be a truly renaissance woman. Her passionate fascination with spirituality, science and art has been a driving force throughout her life.
Women who know and love Ann for her rich musical life will delight in her spontaneous singing. Her teaching will also include ways to explore our voices as a vehicle for our deepest spiritual expression.
Come join women across the generations for conversation, learning, inspiration, sacred pause, singing and fun! In addition to Ann’s presentations we’ll also offer an array of afternoon workshops from creative to thoughtful to physical. Choose what speaks to you. Bring a friend, a mother, a daughter, a grandmother, an aunt or come on your own — new friends are waiting to meet you.

Ann has always followed her heart. Her conviction to create art that expressed her deepest values meant that she often turned down career advancing opportunities that promised conventional success.
Instead, Ann used this same conviction as the impetus behind all of her expression: her extraordinary singing voice, her musical theatre productions, albums, ballets, film scores, story telling, poetry, and the evocative keynote addresses and workshops presented at conferences and retreat centers throughout the world.
She has worked internationally with hospitals and hospice caregivers, serving the dying and those suffering through great loss. She has taught singing and creative expression as a way of opening emotionally to deeper expressions of self. She has served in the environmental movement, co-founding The Trust for Sustainable Forestry.
