Presenter: Sr. Sara Dwyer, ASC

This is a retreat to allow silence to still us. In doing so, we can listen attentively to our life’s myths, metaphors, meanings, and mysteries.  

Then, with compassion and courage, we may embrace the ambiguities of imperfection. We may write, with more clarity and conviction, our soul stories of wholeness and holiness.   

Interweaving Scripture, insights from various contemporary authors, and spiritualities, as well as options to write and share personal stories, this retreat will maintain a sacred space. Guided by Sr. Sara Dwyer.

***Sr. Sara shares more about this retreat on our blog.***
