About the Event

Sanity is fulfilling our life goals and holding our balance in a topsy-turvy world.

Spiritual consciousness is seeing that a fulfilled life is more than reaching personal goals. It is fulfilling our destiny of bringing love, wisdom, and healing to ourselves and others.

From a faith perspective, saintliness is our divinely imprinted calling to find divine life and power in ourselves. Then we can co-create a world of justice, peace, and love around us.

Each of the three is already in us. We can gain the faith to believe this wonderful truth about our wholeness. We can learn practices that help us get there. Integrating sanity, spirituality, and sanctity then happens as a gift of grace. Our retreat day helps us open to it.
