Event details

Come and step into sacred space in the joy of community, and nourish yourself at the deepest level of your being.

By pausing to draw inspiration and wholeness from divine love through the gentle awakening of all the senses, participants will go forth with grace, strength, and renewed vitality to continue on life’s sacred journey.

This will be a time of prayer and art-making, silence and dynamic conversation, self-care, and connection to community. Sessions will include reflections and teachings from Colette’s book, The Divine Heart, as well as contemplative practices such as Visio Divina, walking meditation, sacred poetry, and spiritual journal writing.

Living in the flow of God’s love is the very purpose of life and the way to healing, greater inner freedom, and a deep sense of peace.

The retreat includes art materials and a copy of The Divine Heart

Participants may begin to arrive Friday afternoon after 3pm.

Dinner will be at 5:30pm - 6:30pm. The retreat will begin at 7pm.
