“No woman is required to build the world by destroying herself.” -Rabbi Sofer

Women are gifted givers. However, too often women do not give themselves the gift of time, for rest and restoration. Too often it seems difficult for women to give themselves permission to step away from the busyness of work and the weight of responsibilities to take a much needed break. The truth is, often a brief time of rest and reflection results in a renewed sense of energy and enthusiasm. Time apart, for discussion and discernment, leads us to more effective time engaged in ministry, service and in life!
This retreat will offer time for women to rest and be renewed, within the healing embrace of women who share common experiences. There will be personal private time for meditation, reading or writing. Within a safe space, together we will pray, eat, laugh and share our stories. Resources for healthy living will be shared. We will consider where the Spirit is active in all we do and where this creative Spirit is calling us to go next. 

Program Cost: $299 ($152.50 tuition + $146.50 meals/accommodations) 

Please register at least 2 weeks in advance to secure your place in this program.
