Description

Waiting for Wisdom: A Pre-Advent Retreat

Is it possible to experience awe, mystery or wonder in the old story as we ponder whether we can juggle all the demands on time, relationships, body, and pocketbook? This retreat will encourage women, lay and clergy, to mine the familiar story for the mysterious and universal themes that can take us to the womb of our deepest self. Can we trust the mystery which longs to bring new life into the world through each of our unique imperfect selves? As did Mary and Elizabeth, women supporting women, we will mine the depths for the richness inherent in this seasonal story through story, song, conversation, movement and ritual.
