Belonging, not Belongings

In a time of great social and ecological upheaval, it is vital that we forge alternative ways of being in the world.  During our retreat, we will contemplatively grapple with and explore possible lifestyles that go beyond the consumer paradigm and instead generate connection and kinship.  Looking to Scripture and to 20th century luminaries such as Thomas Merton and Dorothy Day, as well as drawing from the facilitators’ own experiences in community, let us inspire one another to re-define The Good Life.

 The day will include talks, group discussion, personal reflection, and contemplative time in nature.

Saturday, April 28, 2018
The retreat day begins at 9:00am and concludes at 4:00pm.
Cost of $45 includes $10 non-refundable deposit and the noon meal.
