Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 10.29.51 AMThis fall my pals Mark Cevoli, Brian Mantle and I are leading a retreat especially for those in recovery from addiction. Please join us in spectacular Seal Cove for a weekend in community at The Alcyon Center.

If you are just beginning to respond to the call of the spirit – or are simply wondering what it’s like to “go on a retreat”- please join us for this weekend in community. Inspired by the root of “retreat” – “to pull back”, we will read, pray, listen and practice – together and individually. We will explore spiritual practices such as Bendedictine labor (physical work as a meditative practice), cooking with intention, yoga and meditation in silence and heart, and how recovery from addiction merges with the spiritual life to become contemplative action.

This weekend in community is for learning that it is not only “okay” but essential to take a break, begin to build a relationship with the divine, connect with the spirit, touch nature, go deep, laugh, eat, work and sleep. Recovery from addiction merges with the spiritual life to become contemplative action.
