New! Paula D’Arcy Virtual Retreat

April 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Paula D'Arcy, silent retreat, catholic retreat

Opening to the Light:

Drawing on themes from her newest book, Stars at Night: When Darkness Unfolds as Light (October 2016 release), Paula will explore how learning to move through and past life’s inevitable disappointments and losses opens a door to new awareness. In the end, the darkness is recognized as the rich foundation for a larger life and the possibility of awakening to a new way of being here.

This is a virtual retreat and will be shared via Zoom. Links to the retreat will be sent to those that register. Please ensure that you enter the appropriate email address within your registration. The originally scheduled in-person retreat with Paula D’Arcy has been moved to June 22-26, 2022.

Paula D’Arcy is a writer, playwright, retreat leader, seminar speaker and author of 13 books. In 2001 she established Red Bird Foundation, which supports the growth and spiritual development of those in need throughout the world, including men and women in prison. The foundation has sponsored two international gatherings of women known as WOMENSPEAK, conferences which honor the woman’s voice as a force of peace and healing for the world. A former psychotherapist, Paula survived the loss of her husband and young daughter in an accident in 1975. She was three months pregnant at the time. Since that time, Paula has written many books including her best-selling books entitled Gift of the Red Bird, Waking Up to This Day, and Stars at Night. Her book, Song of Sarah, has been translated into eight languages and has been in print for 41 years. Her most recent book is titled Winter of the Heart.
