This retreat is a CYBERCircle of Trust of 4-sessions-spread-over-a-month in the Kirkridge Zoom Room on each Thursday in January, 2021. Participants are encouraged to commit to being in retreat for the entire day each Thursday, meeting in the Zoom Room from 1-4:30 pm Kirkridge Time (also known as Eastern Standard Time) and using the rest of your day in solitude and, when possible, with nature. Of course, that will be up to you, but we are encouraging you to give yourself permission to REALLY be in retreat!
Our online time will include time in the large group, time in small groups, and time in reflection; there will be suggestions and options for time in solitude (for some that will be morning time, for others that will be afternoon, depending on time zone). Evenings will be free – and participants are encouraged (but not required) to spend that time writing and resting, seeing with soft eyes, reflecting and listening to their Inner Voices.
A space will be created that invites slowing down and quieting the inner and outer worlds. An invitation will be extended for persons to serve as Focus Persons for the Clearness Committees* that will take place during our third session. We will carefully teach the process at that time, as we always do in a Circle of Trust, and those of us who are not Focus Persons will have the privilege of serving as committee members.
