About this event

After a long journey of isolation during the pandemic, we are joyful to come together on retreat to strengthen spirits. Support for your own spiritual journey, as you discover its shape and form, is essential as you build the spiritual muscles to move forward from day to day. Join us for a weekend of prayer and meditation, spiritual friendship, and unconditional love. We will learn about western and eastern spiritual traditions, the varieties of spiritual practice, and soul friendship. We will offer Morning Meditations, spiritual companionship, and Lectio Divina. Guided by prayer and meditation practice, Celtic spirituality, and interfaith understandings, we seek refreshment in one another's company and in nature.   FACULTY   Heath Missner, a Spiritual Director and Commissioned Presenter of Centering Prayer, recently retired from serving as Deacon at Christ Episcopal Church in Winnetka, Illinois.

Heath also is a member of the Ceile De, a Celtic Christian contemplative tradition based in Scotland. She is the mother of five, and she loves yoga and being outdoors in the beauty and rhythms of the natural world.   Robert Bowler ("Beau") founded Halcyon Arts to continue doing what he loves, presenting cultural and educational programs in world music and spirituality. He managed Stone Church Arts, a concert series focusing on world music inspired by cellist Eugene Friesen, from 2006 - 2020.
