Retreat: Moving Through Change

Weekend of Oct 20-21.

Expect to find the retreat a helpful process to guide you through experiences of change such as retirement, job loss, workplace changes, family changes, changes due to health issues and more. The retreat is a guided small group process.

The focus of this retreat is ‘Moving Through Change’. Join us in a safe place for exploring your personal “change challenges”. Get a better understanding of the feelings you experience and how you want to “BE” as you move through changes. Surprise yourself with new insights and a stronger sense of how you want to be in your vision of what is ahead. We know that change is a life experience affecting all of us at different times and in different ways. For some it is quick for others it is drawn out. Sometimes we look forward to change. At other times change can be hard to accept. By supporting the participants with the inner processing involved in change, the route to a greater sense of peace with the change may be made. In this way you may be surprised at how change can have some positive outcomes for you and others that it involves. If this is the right time for you to join us; we would love to have you.

The Retreat Agenda

If available, join us for a mix and mingle on Friday evening around 7:20 p.m. We will have refreshments and delicate but light sweets. Get to know the other participants who are on this weekend of learning and sharing.

The formal retreat begins Saturday morning after breakfast. Lunch and snacks are included. We will have a time around lunch for a few different options including rest, reading, or a walk outside. We will end around 5:30 p.m. and those who wish can get ready for a restaurant dinner nearby (optional). We will follow a similar pattern on Sunday and promise to have you on the road by 4:00 p.m.
