Touching the Earth: Clay and Contemplation – A Weekend Retreat

April 12 - April 14

Theme: Touching the Earth: Clay and Contemplation

Using clay as a meditative focus, we will explore the Genesis story of creation as an inward/outward journey, the ground of our own spiritual being. All are welcome and no previous experience with clay is necessary. We will be outside for most of the group sessions.

Leader: Marjory Zoet Bankson is a potter, author, Chair of the Church of the Saviour Council, and seasoned retreat leader.

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 reflections with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends after breakfast Sunday morning with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.

The cost for weekend retreats is $275.  A $125 deposit is required to register.

This retreat is now full.

If you'd like to join the waitlist, please go here.

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.  Please plan to stay for the entire retreat.
