Retreat facilitators - Lisa Ferraro and Erika LuckettThe 2017 Community Retreat

In 2017, the date has already been set. We will be back at St Benedict Lodge on June 2-4.

We have had lots of requests for this to be a community retreat also, and we have not yet made a decision about that. We DO have our facilitators, though! Erika Luckett and Lisa Ferraro will be back to take us to new heights and depths in our soul work!

Scroll down to read more about the Community Retreat. If you were able to make it, we hope it was as special for you as it was for us. And if you missed it, we hope you’ll join in next Memorial Day Weekend 2017!

The Annual Retreat is a community gathering of everyone. We met (in 2016 only) as a combined community, and may return to our separate Men’s and Women’s Retreats in 2017.

To facilitate this occasion in 2016, we brought in two fabulous teachers and musicians, Rev Christy Snow and Rev Jack Fowler. They worked with us from Friday evening through early Sunday afternoon, with their words and music creating transformation for us all.

The Retreat took place on  Memorial Day weekend, at St Benedict Lodge in McKenzie Bridge. Those who wanted to extend their stay by one night did so for an extra fee.

We are so grateful to facilitators Rev Christy Snow and Rev Jack Fowler for the work they did in guiding us through our first community retreat in 2016. We will be doing work all year long based on the foundations they created!
