Come to the Water

Water cleanses, nourishes, renews, invigorates, and blesses with life. 

Come for the time and space to soak in beauty, rest and reflection on the shore of  Lake Michigan.  Optional activities include guided meditation, gentle yoga, labyrinth or meditative walking, input from the presenter, reflection questions for journaling, and small group discussion.

You are invited to experience the contemplative/active balance needed in our spiritual journey.

Friday, July 31, to Saturday, August 1, 2020
The retreat begins on Friday at 7:00pm and concludes at 4:00pm on Saturday.
Cost of $195 includes $50 non-refundable deposit, overnight accommodations, and meals.
