Are you curious about spiritual transformation? Do you have a centering prayer practice? Or a receptive meditation practice?

This retreat offers the opportunity to learn how to have spiritual conversations that illuminate your personal story and those of others in the context of relationship and prayer. Both intimate and confidential, spiritual learning is a practical way of exploring spiritual transformation in community.

Spiritual learning is a set of learnable skills – focusing, asking, speaking, listening, note-taking, organizing, applying and evaluating; aimed at making meaning of individual and collective spiritual transformation; experienced in small groups. 

Participants will experiment with proven techniques for evoking spiritual insights; increase awareness of spiritual growth, especially as a form of celebration to deepen joy, hope and trust; participate in small groups with plenty of support and feedback; and consider options to carry spiritual learning back home, build it into your own life in ways that expand and enrich, and share it with your community.

The schedule for the retreat can be downloaded here: Spiritual-Learning-Workshop-Schedule. The price of this retreat reflects the fact that it is a generously underwritten pilot project.
