Program description:

Summer is the season when all the promissory notes of autumn and winter and spring come due, and each year the debts are repaid with compound interest. In summer it is hard to remember that we had ever doubted the natural process, had ever ceded death the last word, had ever lost faith in the powers of new life.

In the human world, abundance does not happen automatically. It is created when we have the sense to choose community, to come together to celebrate and share our common store. Whether the “scarce resource” is money or love or power or words, the true law of life is that we generate more of whatever seems scarce by trusting its supply and passing it around. Authentic abundance does not lie in secured stockpiles of food or cash or influence or affection, but in belonging to a community where we can give those goods to others who need them – and receive them from others when we are in need.

This one-day seasonal retreat offers time out to reflect on your life’s journey and the things that matter most to you. Using poetry, journaling, and times of silence and dialogue to guide our reflections, we will create space to (re)connect with the inner wisdom that guides and sustains us, and gives meaning to our lives and work.
