About the Event
Within each of us is a divine treasure, and if we hope to discover it, we need to go deep into the heart of who we are.
In our weekend together, surrounded by the beauty and serenity of San Damiano Retreat, we will guide you through a series of reflections and meditations, inviting you into a deeper sense of being. Together we will behold the wisdom and grace of being just who we are, taking plenty of time to share with one another the blessings and challenges of the journey which has brought each of us to this place of peaceful sanctuary.
In this full-weekend retreat we will engage you – from beginning to end – in a thoughtful and inspiring look at the stories of how you came to be the person you are and the qualities of your life that can be a true legacy to future generations. In our sessions together you will have the opportunity to:
🌱 Explore the life lessons that have made you stronger, wiser, and truer.
🌱 Discover the value you have created in your life that will be meaningful to others.
🌱 Connect with like-hearted others in a way that is affirming, encouraging, and healing. We’ll practice the sacred art of quiet listening, allowing one another to bring forth what is true and alive in them.
🌱 Engage in gentle, meditative movement that will inspire your imagination. There will also be time for quiet walks to rest in simple awareness.
🌱 Gain a deeper understanding of what matters most in your life, and how you want to be remembered.
🌱 Leave with essential tools for making decisions and having conversations with loved ones about your legacy and end of life wishes.
Whether you’ve experienced a Legacy Workshop or Retreat before, or this will be your first time, we warmly welcome you to join us for a full-weekend experience that we promise will be like no other!
