GIFTED and GIFTING in EPIPHANY - A Contemplative Writing Retreat with Judith Favor

  • Altadena, CA United States (map)


Let all who are around bring gifts to the one who is awesome.
— Psalm 76:11

The Magi aren’t the only ones bearing gifts during Epiphany. Those who view inspiration as gift also receive the fruits of personal creativity as gift.

Prayer and poetry are close cousins. “They play at the edges of mystery,” writes Marilyn McEntyre, author of When Poets Pray. “Poets hold a tension between line and sentence, between sense and reason, between the transcendent and the deeply, comfortingly familiar.”

Please bring one treasured poem to give away during this retreat, words that have gifted you and will gift a spiritual companion during Epiphany.

Who has given a gift to him, to receive a gift in return?
— Romans 11:35


The cost for this retreat is $68 ($78 with lunch).
