Organic Spirituality: A Guided Retreat
Jun 4 @ 4:00 pm – Jun 10 @ 12:00 pm

Hiding in the persons, places, events and things of our everyday life, God invites us to come closer. We open our eyes and adopt habits that slow us down in preparation to meet God. This retreat explores ordinary means that we can use to wake up our contemplative awareness in daily living. Come and refresh your way of being and encounter the Divine. For more information.
