Let’s gather together to remember, reclaim, and name those who have gone before us and continue to walk with our work today. Join us in the woods of the Appalachian mountains to honor this time when the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest. It will be a time for storytelling, altar building, and listening for their voices calling from the stones and the wind.
This retreat will be aligned with the fall 2023 issue of Geez magazine on the theme of saints. The issue asks questions about who we consider saints and the roles that saints (both official and unofficial) play in our lives and communities.
Geez magazine is a quarterly, ad-free print magazine on contemplative cultural resistance. The work of Geez is storytelling. We believe that stories are crucial to the ongoing struggles for justice — that they are part of what sustains us, gives us rest, and offers hope.

Lucia Wylie-Eggert is art director for Geez magazine and works for Three Lyons Creative.
