Dreaming in Winter
January 12-14, 2018

 “Fresh things I now reveal; before they appear I tell you of them.”

Isaiah 42:9

The New Year stretches before you offering hope and another chance. Guidance for how to move forward in this New Year
comes nightly in dreams and daily in daydreams. This retreat provides creative ways to explore those dreams…the dreams of new beginnings that are fresh as new fallen snow as well as the treasured dreams of old that are worth keeping and deserve a fresh view.
Bring a journal and your sense of adventure. We’ll explore dreams, play in dream theatre, share, and pray together.

The Art of Healing Through Dreaming

October 21, 2017

Pre-requisite: Participation in one of Sr. Carol’s dream groups, retreats or workshops.
This is a day of active dreaming together in support of spiritual, emotional and physical healing for ourselves and others.

“Perhaps, in the end, there are no dreams intrinsically more healing than those that demonstrate that our separation is an illusion; that we are part of a living web that extends beyond our own skin and skull.” (Healing Dreams, Marc Ian Barasch).

We will open ourselves to God’s dream. “For we are never alone in the visions we dream, no matter their middleness and humanity. Dreaming with us is the Lover of Israel, the God of Jesus, the Creator, the Great Spirit, the Master of Breath, who knits together all creation’s doings— the one alone whose dreams are the dreams that heal.” (Visions: The Soul’s Path to the Sacred, Eddie Ensley)

Bring your journal for action plans and a symbol of healing that you can place at the center of the circle.

                                     Heart & Soul Quest
November 17-19, 2017

                                                     A Retreat for Women

                                                   Hope: Openness to Possibility

We can lose hope when overwhelmed by life through great loss, repeated failure, being hurt by people we trust, being in impossible situations.

When we feel hopeless, it is the nature of the One Beyond All Names to lead us through the valley of darkness and the shadow of death to new life.

You can grow hope through
        Faith – in something bigger than you.
       Gratitude – mourn the loss and remember what you have.
       Love – treasure who you love and who loves you.

Come celebrate possibilities this weekend!

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace… (Romans 15:13)
