Conscious Aging – Making Room for the Spirit as We Age

“It is not how old you are, but how you are old.”

- Jules Renard

As you consider your retirement years and grasp the reality of growing older, this retreat will explore the benefits, joys, challenges, and concerns ahead.  How do we live this stage of our life well and see aging as a blessing?   The combination of reduced work responsibilities and growing older provides an opportunity to live life differently and more contemplatively, moving from “doing” to “being.”  

Discover how we can share our Spirit-given gifts, talents, and experience in new ways that bring joy to ourselves and others and give continued meaning and purpose to our lives.

Friday, June 14, to Sunday, June 16, 2019
The retreat begins at 7:00pm and concludes with the noon meal on Sunday.
Cost of $255 includes $50 non-refundable deposit, overnight accommodations, and meals.
