In an increasingly distracted society we need places that attract us by their beauty and simplicity, places that help us still and clear our busy mind, places that offer space to reflect and reconnect with what matters most in our lives. The labyrinth is such a place.
During this retreat you will:
Explore the ancient wisdom the labyrinth offers for contemporary times.
Learn how the labyrinth became rooted in the Christian story of pilgrimage, moving one toward healing and wholeness.
Experience the three movements of walking the labyrinth as a journey to the center of one's being and the heart of God.
Return and step back into the world with thanksgiving, insight, and new energy for your everyday journey.
Come expecting to be surprised by grace as you discover what walking this sacred path can bring to your life leadership. For beginners and seasoned practitioners that want to refresh and deepen their spiritual journey. All are welcome!
