    2018-02-03
    Trinity Episcopal Church, State Street, Santa Barbara, CA, United States

    Date & Location Updates

    Due to the recent fires in Santa Barbara and our need to reschedule this retreat -- from January 13th to February 3rd -- this retreat has also been moved to a new location at Trinity Episcopal Church (1500 State St, Santa Barbara, CA 93101).

    Description

    “How can queries cultivate deep listening in our distracted culture?”— PARKER PALMER“It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question.”— EUGENE IONESCODo you ever find yourself...
    • Asking Where did the juice go?
    • Wondering if there might be another way of looking at your life?
    • Considering different ways of thinking your way into the choices ahead?
    • Exploring your sacred story as an action adventure?
    • Remembering moments when you said Yes, I will!
    • Recalling and reflecting upon what happened next?
    • Wondering how to experience your body as a house of prayer?
    • Listening inwardly for new queries forming in your depths?
    • Noticing which tentative inner questions resonate with possibility?
     “Are you breathing just a little and calling it life?”— MARY OLIVERDuring a day of gently-guided writing, participants will seek and find emergent living questions, threads of grace winding through relationships with body, soul, God, others, vocation and society. Following the poetic invitation of William Wordsworth, we will explore a variety of contemplative ways to “Remove the dust of custom so things shine again, each arrayed in its robe of original light.”
