October 25-27, 2022 with the Rev. Michelle Meech
The Enneagram is so often used as a tool for typing our personality, but its real power is in using it for our own spiritual work. As we become more aware of how our personality manifests every day, we start to see through it and realize that we have other choices in how we live our lives. This workshop utilizes didactic instruction and experiential exercises so participants can unlock the Enneagram’s wisdom for their own awareness and spiritual work. This is recommended for people with some experience in working with the Enneagram.

The centerpiece of this week will be the Thanksgiving meal. But every day will be a celebration, with activities and time to reflect on our blessings. Meals are served family-style, and prayer, worship, and community reflection will punctuate our late-autumn days together in the New England woods. Come for just a few days or the whole week!
December 22–26, 2022
Unplug from this busy season and enjoy a festive, meaningful Christmas in West Cornwall as Advent alights into Christmas. Participate in prayer, reflection, and community Christmastime activities, including carol singing, cookie decorating, walks in the quiet woods, conversations around the Christmas tree, common-table meals, and Christmas Eve worship by candlelight. Oh, and if there’s snow, the sledding hill is waiting!
September 23–25, 2022 with the Rev. Dr. Mark Francisco Bozzuti-Jones and Dr. Kathy Bozzuti-Jones
Join us for a weekend of prayer, reflection, writing, silence, and sharing of poems from Mary Oliver, Maya Angelou and more to inspire us on our spiritual journeys. This retreat is fully booked but you may join the waitlist.
Cutting-edge science supports a truth that poets, artists, mystics, and earth-based cultures have proclaimed across millennia: life on this planet is radically interconnected. Join Lyanda Lynn Haupt, an award-winning author, naturalist, and ecophilosopher, as we explore her book Rooted: Life at the Crossroads of Science, Nature and Spirit. In Rooted, Lyanda explores “rootedness” as a way of being in concert with wilderness—and wildness—and throughout the book she offers practices, way-markers and fortification for all who are seeking our unique, bewildering path through the essential question of how to live with grace and authenticity on our imperiled, beloved earth. This will be an exciting retreat for participants to think more deeply about environmental justice, the places where we find joy, and our connection to nature.
