Dancing within the Heart of the Holy One

July 19, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - July 24, 2020 @ 1:00 pm


The Holy One dances throughout the cosmos in three-fold splendor. Creation, clothed in majesty mirrors Divine love and compassion, inviting us into relationship. This retreat will call us to deeper awareness and participation in the dance of living and loving. Each morning we will engage in a reflective presentation that will prayerfully weave our daily theme with art, music, literature, scripture and even dance! As each day unfolds, time will be provided for personal reflection, creative expression and sharing of the heart.

The week includes the following reflective sessions:

Dancing in Heart of Creation; The Dream of the Holy One; The Lord of the Dance; Dancing within the Heart of the Holy One; Living simply; Sharing our Cosmic Story
