Throughout this week you are invited to experience God with time to listen, be still, journal, reflect and mediate in community and in nature. Together we will learn to be aware of God’s Presence in the ordinary and extraordinary moments of life. These practices and encounters bring inner awareness, hope, healing, and transformation as we learn to rest in God. Each day will include workshop style learning and lightly guided spiritual practices. We will also explore the benefits of a contemplative life and how to practically live this out. Practices will include Centering Prayer, Welcoming Prayer Practice, labyrinth, creative art and nature experiences.
