We are anxiously anticipating next weekend’s “Be Here Now” retreat with author Mary DeTurris Poust. It promises to be an inspiring weekend to help you slow down and focus, paying attention to the daily gifts that God shares with each one of us! Let’s read more about it, borrowed from Mary’s blog. You can read more about Mary on her website here.
The Now is the greatest gift of life because to be in the given moment contains all other gifts…To be in the Now means being fully alive.
~Bro. David Steindl-Rast, OSB
Be Here Now
What’s this retreat all about? Details:
So often we rush headlong through our days, our weeks, our lives, missing out on the real moments, those places where the spark of the Divine is so close we could almost touch it — if only we’d been paying attention. We tell ourselves we don’t have time, but the truth is we don’t need more time but rather more presence. When we seek beauty right where we are, we discover God in our midst, in the ordinary events and mundane moments of our lives.
The Divine is not a distant dream but a daily reality. Join writer and retreat leader Mary DeTurris Poust for a weekend focused on this beautiful truth and how to let it unfold in your life day by day. This retreat will include not only formal presentations but guided meditation, optional yoga classes, journaling, poetry, collage as prayer, and small doses of silence to soothe the soul. Come away for a short time to restore your serenity, recharge your energy, and recognize God alongside you every step of the way.
Check in begins at 4pm and the retreat will begin after dinner. Lunch is included on Sunday before departure. Info and registration HERE.
*Early Bird discount has been extended through the date the retreat begins too!
