All Is Gift
With Tom Allen
When: Saturday, 9 AM – 3 PM
March 20, 2021
Where: Online via Zoom
3 focus areas for this retreat are:
- All Is Sacred
- Finding Gratitude for what we would rather not have
- Rewriting life stories to be more redemptive
The retreat is silent and virtual. Retreatants are invited to find a quiet place to retreat in their own homes, and to find opportunities to go outside into nature.
Each of the 3 areas includes a 20 minute talk, interspersed with pertinent music, videos, and poetry. After each of these 20 minute segments, ample time for retreatants is provided to reflect on the topic with select questions provided.
This retreat has already been offered elsewhere and has been very well received. Participants appreciate the contemplative nature and pacing of the retreat.
