This recently refreshed retreat series is for clergy who want to enter into intentional community, to reflect on the seasons of their life and ministry, and to listen deeply to the Holy Spirit and discern what God is calling forth next. Led by trained facilitators from the Center of Courage and Renewal, it meets for four three-day periods over the span of a year. 

You are invited to set aside time for you-

Your heart, your mind, your body and your soul- to be part of the next iteration of Soul Leaders.

Our focus will shift to a contemplative and celebratory look at the four seasons - Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. How are these seasons reflected and expressed in your work, love and life?

We will begin in November with a look at Autumn and the glorious riot of color that blankets the landscape. It becomes clear that the canopy of green was comprised of many different kinds of trees. Each has so much to offer as seeds are sown that will become evident in a season yet to be.

We will meet four times – once in each season. We will gather at Koinonia for dinner on a Monday evening and end our time together after lunch on Wednesday.

Our time together will be shaped by the use of the Touchstones in an effort to create trustworthy, gentle, empowering space for everyone. Our time together is not a time to fix or advise, but to listen deeply to each other and ourselves. 

If you went through one of the three God Sized Dreams retreat series, you may want to come on back for this one as our topic has shifted and you know the value of this way of being together.

You do and are expected to do so much for others.

Perhaps this is the time and season, to do something just for you.
