& Life Transitions Retreat"

We gather to grow our spiritual journeys.

 

Our Beginnings

We are five people from various faiths or spiritual practices who have been coming together for monthly breakfasts over a period of seven years to support each other on our spiritual journeys.

 
A man, wandering lost in the forest for several days, finally encountered another. He called out: “Brother, show me the way of this forest.” The man replied, “Brother, I, too, am lost. I can only tell you this: the ways I have tried lead nowhere. They have only led me astray. Take my hand and let us search for the way together.” Rabbi Hayim would add: “So it is with us. When we go our separate ways, we may go astray. Let us join hands and look for the way together.
— A Hasidic Tale
“The world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles, no matter how long, but only by a spiritual journey, a journey of one inch, very arduous and humbling and joyful, by which we arrive at the ground at our feet, and learn to be at home.”
— Wendell Berry
