Virtual Epiphany Retreat – January 6th, 2022
The lore surrounding the Magi has fascinated generations of believers and seekers for countless centuries. For, couched in the mystique of the Christmas story, the role of these wise astrologers has evolved over time for individuals and communities as their personal meaning and contributions have been explored.
Join us on the evening of Epiphany (or “Little Christmas” as it is known) for a mini-retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the Holiday Season. During our gathering together via zoom, those present will consider information about these ancient figures and their legacy while applying the gift of their star-inspired journey to each participant’s respective story. Moreover, there will be opportunities to engage in meditation, prayer, and other meaningful exercises for a deeper appreciation of how the Magi offer a unique spiritual treasure to our perennial celebration of Christmas. Please bring a journal for use during writing exercises and throughout the virtual program.
Participants are also welcome to decorate their space that will appear on zoom before the program begins with sacred art, ornaments, or artifacts that symbolize the Epiphany or the Magi. Guided by Gordon Creamer.
