2018 COLORADO QUAKER WOMEN’S ANNUAL RETREAT

April 27-29 at Highlands Presbyterian Camp and Retreat Center, Allenspark, CO

Please register by Sunday, March 18. Space is limited, so please register early.

(You may check with us after that date to see if space is still available.)

Theme: Playing with Spirit and the Arts

With so many things wrong in our world, it’s easy to forget that we also need to nurture ourselves. Let’s get together to do that by exploring art, sharing our spirits, our spiritual insights, and considering what steps we can take to send out positive ripples from our actions.

Queries:

  • When times are hard, what types of creativity help you find your quiet center? 
  • What kind of art do you enjoy doing for the pleasure and renewal the creative process gives you? Describe a time when being creative especially renewed you.
  • What spiritual practices help you in good times and/or in hard times? When has a particular practice helped you in a really strong way?
  • Describe a technique that especially helped you heal from or stay strong during a time of stress. 

More queries may be sent out in March before we gather. Please share any ideas you have for activities around the theme.
