And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.
~ Meister Eckhart

As 2023 commences its unfolding, humanity will find itself steeped in its recapping of the past year and its calculations for the year ahead. This creates a significantly ripe opportunity once again for the citizenry of the world to explore, embrace, and integrate the energies that emanate from beginning anew. Even moreso on the spiritual plane, this time and space in January forms a sacred threshold of promise and possibility. It reminds seekers to pause, ponder and pray about the joy-filled endeavors and daunting challenges that will face each of us in the months and seasons ahead.

Join us for an early Winter day of respite and retreat that will include time for personal and group envisioning of what it means to arrive at this annual sacred threshold. Participants will be invited to spend time in prayer/meditation and journaling while also engaging in creative exercises for naming and navigating the dawn of the new year. Bring along your ability to dream and an openness to connect with your deepest heart’s desire. A journal is a great companion for this retreat. Guided by Gordon Creamer.
