It’s true of every season that change is in the air, but the back to school of early September, the shift toward cooler temperatures, and the longing for some routine again despite the wonder of summer timelines, makes the change of season that much more evident.
Here at the studio, it is time to switch gears for the season too. The Autumn day retreat will be offered on TWO DATES – October 21 and 28. I continue to offer 1:1 spiritual direction in the studio or by phone, as well as day retreats both led and self led. So if you find yourself longing to PRESS PAUSE in life; or are in a time of transition and are seeking DISCERNMENT; or work with people a lot and need a day of SELF CARE – consider a day retreat.
What would a self-led day retreat look like? You would have access to the studio for a fee of $30. You could use the time in any way you wish, I would be your host and greet you, but otherwise you would do your own thing.
What would a guided day retreat look like? You would have access to the studio and I would help create a framework for your day according to your needs and goals for $80. This would include suggestions for prayer and other spiritual practice as well as check-in points throughout the day.
In both cases coffee, tea and water are available for your use. You could bring a bag lunch or visit a local cafe or restaurant for lunch. Maps are provided for the surrounding area including hiking trails and our family vineyards. Please remember that the studio has stair access and is therefore not accessible, and that the washroom is in a separate building. If you require accessibility and are interested in a retreat day, let me know and I will work with you to find an alternate location.
