The annual online winter retreat is our most popular event of the year. Last year we had almost 50 people participating – meditating, contemplating, praying, and practicing a deeper spiritual commitment. This event is non-denominational, and will feature the guidance of sages from many traditions – Buddhist, Catholic, Hindu, Wiccan, Judaism, Islam – a cornucopia of wisdom!
I wanted to officially announce our theme for Winter Retreat 2016: LOVE. Quite simply, this is a theme that is so fundamental to our shared human experiences, spiritual and otherwise. Forgiveness comes from love. Maintaining healthy relationships comes from love. Living a healthy, vibrant, generous life is completely based on LOVE. Love is infinite, it cannot be diminished or depleted.
What is real love? How do we find it? How do we share it? What is self-love, and how do I love my neighbor as myself? What about divine love? The litany of questions abounds, and weaves our connection tighter together as we explore the theme of LOVE and deepen our understanding of LOVE.
