A Gathering of Women: Celebrating the growing freedom of our spirit
Friday, August 25, 2023 3:00 PM to Saturday, August 26, 2023 7:00 PM
Over the past three years, cohorts of women have been meeting online and spiritually traveling together, with Rev. Lee Ireland facilitating. They have been sharing their journeys and weaving their stories with Estés's Women Who Run with Wolves, Murdock's The Heroine’s Journey, and Cameron's The Artist's Way. These resources have helped the women to individually recognize their wounds and find healing and prayer to be transformed through the light, love and grace of God.
It’s one thing to read about all of this. It’s another to be in shared experiences where we can unexpectedly get an insight that can lead to our own personal healings; or to be in those moments when we find ourselves shedding tears and naming the pain that has kept us stuck in a past experience - that was physically hurtful or in words someone said.
Whether you've been involved with the monthly Gatherings of Women or not, you are invited to join us on retreat from Friday, August 25th through Saturday, August 26th, with an extended overnight option through Sunday, August 27th.
Come and walk with your sisters in faith and give thanks for those who know the journey isn’t always easy, and that it can become easier knowing that we’re not the only one feeling a certain way or thinking certain thoughts. You are invited to simply sit quietly and observe, or you can choose to share. No one is obligated to talk. We will include time for journaling, for walking around the grounds, for walking the labyrinth, perhaps some art time, and/or stepping away or for conversing with someone as feels right.
With check-in at 3 pm, we will meet from 4 pm on Friday through dinner on Saturday, with the appropriate breaks for meals and sleep. You’re invited to extend your retreat and stay through Sunday morning with breakfast included.
