Renewing what really matters, becoming who we truly are,
doing what actually counts
Time & space
We will start on Thursday, October 17, 2019 at 4:00 PM. We will end on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 4:00 PM.
Our program will balance focused input, discussion, and reflection with time for rest and gentle recreation. Each day will follow a simple, quiet rhythm that will include meditative exercise, formal presentations by faculty, healthy meals, small-group interaction, and facilitated discussions. Dinners will be a celebration, often with a sacred dimension, and sometimes as a Christian Eucharist. Evenings will include time for reading, as well as the sharing of music, poetry and story-telling. Mind, body and soul will be nourished throughout this balanced week-long program, which will come as a welcome change from the pace and style of many training-type programs.
The gathering place for the program is Trinity Retreat Center in West Connecticut. This tranquil, welcoming center is a ministry of the world-renowned Episcopal Church: Trinity Wall Street, New York.
The Center offers an environment of gracious hospitality and peaceful refuge. It has recently been superbly renovated, and it provides comfortable, beautiful accommodation in a setting that adjoins more than seven hundred acres of conservation trust and state forest. The retreat compound includes an historic stone chapel, a monastic garden, an orchard and working farm, a small donkey sanctuary, and extensive hiking trails—all on the banks of the Housatonic River.
