When planning for the college’s first optional staff retreat, it was very important that we get everything perfect. The venue, we knew, was great. We knew that the staff were coming willingly. But who would provide a blend of everything so that both male and female staff would feel as if their needs were attended to? Who would be able to attend to our spiritually diverse needs and make all of us feel as if we had the retreat prepared for each one of us? Who would give us the space to be a staff without having someone “in our face”?
Greg’s name came up early in our deliberations. We settled on him and we are so delighted that we did. We couldn’t have wanted for more, for better, for greater!
Greg had known a little of our spiritual journey as a staff as he had helped us write our Staff Spirituality Policy, Living Towards Integration. He knew of our college charism. But he crafted a retreat experience that merged the two and added just enough depth, just enough breadth and space as to be “spot on”. Greg was gentle to our souls; patient with our minds; and attentive to our needs. He was respectful of us being “staff” and invitational to all our possibilities.
I could not recommend Greg more highly, and immediately agreed with staff that we should “book him again”.
