Awaken – Spring Retreat


A Spring Day Retreat

Saturday April 8, 2017

10 am – 2:30 pm – At The Contemplative Studio – Jordan, Ontario


A day to reflect upon the wisdom, images and invitations that Spring offers.

An opportunity to pause and reconnect with oneself, with community, with God’s Spirit, and with the rhythm of the seasons.

A gift to ourselves that will allow us to re-engage our lives in a more awakened, refreshed and replenished way.

We will start and end our day gathering in circle, an opportunity to listen and learn from one another’s experiences and stories.

The day will also include:

  • A guided silent forest walk on the beautiful Bruce Trail easily accessed from the Studio.
  • Personal reflection time with optional art supplies and prompts for creativity and contemplation.
  • Coffee, tea, water and snacks will be provided.

tree rootsPractical Suggestions:

  • Bring a bag lunch.
  • Come dressed for the weather as we will walk rain or shine.
  • Wear good walking shoes or hiking boots for the trail.
  • Feel free to bring indoor shoes or slippers.
