A Novice in Nature - Transforming Our Spirit Life: A Weekend Retreat back

July 24 - July 26, 2020

We are waiting to see if we will be able to safely reopen in time for this retreat. Please check back for updates.

Theme: A Novice in Nature: Transforming Our Spirit Life by Learning from Our Plant and Animal Elders. Drawing from scripture, Robin Wall Kimmerer (Braiding Sweetgrass) and Annie Dillard (Pilgrim at Tinker Creek), we will explore how to set aside our expectations and preconceptions about "nature" and learn to look, feel, taste and experience being part of the natural world with a beginner's mind.
Leader: Connie Ridgway is a lover of Dayspring and its honoring of nature, which has transformed her life. She is a singer, counselor and meditator as well as a member of Eighth Day Faith Community.
