End of Year Retreat: Reviewing the Old, Dreaming the New

Led by Sue & David Woods

This “End of Year Retreat” provides a space for you to reflect on the year that has been and the year that is to come. The retreat will take a contemplative approach embracing communal worship and meditations on scripture and poetry. Each day links with the elemental themes of Land, Water, Incarnation, Fire, and Air. There will be daily walks on the property to ground us in the earth's wisdom and in our own bodies. There will also be ample use of silence, allowing as much time as possible for connection with the land, personal reflection, journaling and rest.

Cost: Six day course $850 (single) or $675 (shared room/ concession). The price includes all meals and accommodation.
