Jesus, Buddha, and the Shared Ground of Contemplation Retreat

Trinity Retreat Center

A scholar of world religions, Huston Smith says that Jesus and the Buddha were the only two individuals in history who caused people to ask “What are you?” rather than “Who are you?” On this retreat, we will examine how the religions that have emerged from the teachings of these two spiritual giants can mutually enrich one another. With both conceptual learning and contemplative practice, this retreat will explore how interfaith dialogue moves beyond an exchange of ideas to practice and compassionate action.

Led by Clay Williams.

Create. Contemplate. Write from the Heart Retreat

Trinity Retreat Center

Life is like a river, often flowing strong and constant and at times hindered by obstacles, churned by storms, and diminished by drought. As we move through life, we gather experiences and create stories that need telling. How do we communicate those stories with honesty, courage, imagination, and a willingness to be surprised by grace? Come for personal writing time and leave with a deeper understanding of your life.

Led by Anne A. Simpkinson.

Eco-Spirituality: Liberating Creation Retreat

Trinity Retreat Center

In Genesis, God calls creation “good” six times before humans are even created. In a season when that good creation is damaged and crying out, with the poor and oppressed often suffering most, we gather for a retreat exploring the ecological crisis through the lens of scripture and theology. From the retreat center’s farm, forest, and riverbanks, we’ll draw from the Book of Common Prayer’s Baptismal Covenant to ponder how we can extend our Creator’s liberating, redemptive activity to the natural world.

Led by the Rev. Dr. Mark Francisco Bozzuti-Jones and Laura Alexander.
