Greetings!

Our journey is one of perpetual tension as Henri Nouwen's life attested. We all wrestle with the existence of spiritual polarities which we have to know how to navigate creatively. Through this retreat, we will confront some of these inward,outward, and upward polarities and learn how to befriend their accompanying tensions via Nouwen's own examples.

Our weekend will consist of personal time of solitude, small group interactions, plenary teaching (see the focal themes), community sharing, and prayer liturgies.

Join us for this special weekend experience. This retreat is limited to the first twenty participants to register (see Registration Info below) so it will be an intimate group.

Companioning you on the journey,
