Moving At The Speed of Guidance with Megan LeBoutillier
When the world was “right side up” it was sometimes difficult to find the time and space to slow down and find a quiet place for reflection. Now that the world is “upside down” or maybe even “spinning” we have plenty of quiet time and space, but confusion surrounds what constitutes guidance and what is merely distraction. This brief retreat invites participants to explore how to cultivate a wise heart in the midst of disruption.

Finding What You Didn’t Lose with Jean Richardson and Sally Hare
In this mini-retreat on the afternoon following the 2020 US Election, Sally Z. Hare and Jean Richardson. Of course, we haven’t really lost anything… Not our hearts, our true selves, nor our sense of passion for our life and work. But the pressures and hectic pace of our modern lives too often cause us to feel like we are losing hope – and we can no longer see what has always been there, our own gifts and strengths. As we approach another transition in a lifetime of change, we need a place to quiet our hearts and find what is there.
