Retreat for Spiritual Guides: "Nurturing Souls: Our Own and Those We Companion"

This retreat is for spiritual guides who desire to take some time to reflect on their ministry of nurturing others and to gift themselves with the time to nurture themselves. 

Norvene Vest will serve as our retreat facilitator.  As a spiritual guide herself she will bring the wisdom of an experienced spiritual guide and her knowledge of the field.  Norvene has written several books, including Tending the Holy:  Spiritual Direction Across Traditions, and she edited Still Listening:  New Horizons in Spiritual Direction, a volume of essays by seasoned spiritual guides.

Norvene Vest is a theologian, author, and spiritual guide with a passion for deepening people’s relationship with God.  She envisions a “third way” between religious orthodoxy and secular disbelief.  Norvene is intentionally reflective in this liminal or threshold time, about herself and the world, as she explores ways to live creatively with chaos and uncertainty, grounded in spiritual practice and community.  Her theology has been informed by feminist values and the philosophy of Paul Ricoeur.  Norvene recently co-authored What is Your Practice:  Lifelong Growth in the Spirit.
