New Year's Retreat: Finding Wholeness in a Broken World

As we move into the New Year we will acknowledge and sit with the challenges and gifts of 2022.

We will cultivate the intimate art of finding our place of home and belonging as we move forward.

Recognizing the potential for wholeness that lies in the midst of that which feels broken.

Cultivating resilience, we will be invited to sit in the gratitude and abundance that can guide us in each moment right where we are.
