Sacred Earth- Sacred Work
Friday, June 28, 2019 4:00 PM to Sunday, June 30, 2019 4:00 PM
This retreat is a primer on the basics of Creation Spirituality. It offers participants connection, support, renewal, encouragement and empowerment individually, for our communities and for our world. Together we explore Earth wisdom and the tools for understanding the nature of growth and change. Rooted in the work of Matthew Fox, this retreat compels us to live out our Sacred Work in the world through spiritual inquiry, creativity, and prophetic action.
