Balance is a great word. It’s one of those words we love to hear but may not always know how to embrace. Wonderful concept, difficult to achieve, never ending process. Webster tells us balance is an even distribution and general harmony between parts. Spirituality teaches us balance is allowing time for grief and gratitude, certainty and unknown, holding on and letting go. One way to achieve better balance is through community. In community we think beyond self and deepen what is important to us as individuals and as a whole. With the guidance of Fr. Ronald Rolheiser’s four pillars we will learn, reflect, share, and pray as we explore how to better practice balance. We will affirm those areas of life where we experience balance and recognize those areas where balance is most needed.

Through quiet reflection and group conversation, we will identify strategies and engage in spiritual practices to continue to live into balance. Handouts will be provided and a journal will be helpful to bring for this retreat. Guided by Andrea Springer.
