Listening for God: A Place to Begin
A contemplative Retreat for Clergy and Spiritual Leaders
As people who seek to live and show God’s mercy how do we stay grounded, flourish, and see where God is leading us? How do we filter out the static of the world’s do’s and don’ts and hear the voice of God in the midst?
What do you need for your soul to flourish in these challenging times of change?
Join us for the first in a series of retreats designed for your soul to rest and be restored through God’s presence in creation. Learn and experience contemplative practices designed to help you hear the Divine stirrings alive in you.
Retreat fee: $425
