Being Turned by Mystery: A Retreat Within the Ever-Opening Circle – Saturday, Jul. 23 @ 1 PM-5 PM
Many spiritual traditions see the circle as a symbol of transformation- from the Medicine Wheel to the Labyrinth to the Sufi mystic’s ecstatic spinning dance. Even the Hokey Pokey! We seem to know turning around is “what it’s all about!”

Mindfulness & Nature: From Sunlight to Stardust – Thursday, Jul. 14 @ 7 PM-9:30 PM
Enjoy nature’s sights and sounds, from sunlight to stardust, as you breathe in the beauty and wonder of God’s creation. Participants may walk our prairie and view pollinators in action amongst our vast array of native flowers. From the tree frogs to crickets and grasshoppers, Nature’s residents will provide lovely tunes which we will follow with songs and treats around a campfire.
Virtues: Come Of Age Retreat (5-Day Retreat) – Sunday- Friday, Jul. 17-22
Having spent years seeking to faithfully live the Gospel of Jesus, there comes a time when we need to look back and see how we have grown on the journey of spirituality. Then we can give thanks for what God’s Spirit has done in our lives, what that Spirit continues to do, and how we might be open to it. While this retreat will not consider the usual traditional virtues, it will consider those such as wonder, freedom, balance, restlessness, perseverance, as well as others, all of which are the movement of God’s Spirit in our lives. Each will consider how the Incarnation has taken root in our lives.
