Release and Restoration: A Weekend Retreat back

October 2 - October 4, 2020

Milkweed

Theme: Release and Restoration. Retreat is a time to stop, look and listen. Using different versions of Psalm 19, we will explore the many ways that God speaks. And, as autumn deepens toward winter, we will also listen to the land, noticing signs of distress along with release and restoration. Are you being called to harvest seeds for the future? Can you hear Earth speak your name? Letting the land speak to us, we will focus on release of what we do not need to carry, trusting in the cycle of rest and restoration.
Leader: Marjory Zoet Bankson is a seasoned spiritual guide, author and Steward of Seekers Church.

Weekend retreats run Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. The silence begins Friday night after dinner when the leader opens the retreat and introduces the theme. The leader usually offers brief meditations with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends late-morning Sunday with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.

The cost for weekend retreats is $235. To reserve a space, please send a $100 deposit with an application you can print from the application page, or pay on line by going to the application page and clicking on payment options.

Dinner on Friday at 7 pm is the first official gathering. You are welcome to arrive and settle in between 3:30 and 6:30 pm on Friday. The retreat will end by 2 pm on Sunday.  It is important that you come on a weekend when you can stay for the whole retreat.
