February 15 - February 17, 2019
Theme: A HOMECOMING. The journey is long—
come home this weekend to a place where you can be
known, loved and truly belong. Take time to stop, rest
and be gently nurtured in the arms of God's Divine
Presence. "Closer than my skin, closer than my eyes,
closer than my thought is to myself, here you are,
Unimaginable God. From you I emerge at each split
second, toward you I move, moment by moment, to
you I inexorably go: you are home." (William Cleary)
This will be a time for spiritual replenishment and
renewal. Have a cup of tea, sit by the fire and unplug.
Reconnect with the Holy Mystery full of wonder
found in the beauty of nature, and residing in the
stillness of your own heart.
Leader: Sallie Chatfield, an experienced leader of
contemplative prayer groups and retreats, who enjoys
art-making and photography, is an associate of Shalem
Institute for Spiritual Formation.
An Open Retreat.
