With Eyes Wide Open

3:30 PM 24 April 2017   -   10:00 AM 28 April 2017 | Retreats


Within the monastic rhythm of the hours the participants will spend time listening and reflecting on ecological issues, on care for the earth and learning the gentle art of working with the earth to build an organic garden. It will be a retreat that engages the heart and the hands. Many people in our communities are moved by the cry of the earth, the ecological devastation but seek to know how they might respond to this in their daily lives. This retreat will be an opening, a space to shift concerns into dreams and into actions.
