2019 Women's Retreat

Seeking God in a Busy Life
May 3-5, 2019
Carter Hall Conference Center

It doesn’t matter what age or stage we’re in, women are busy. How does one with so much going on keep centered on God? How might we hold a space for God in the mix of the busy and mundane, the habitual and the spontaneous? What practices might help us hold a space of attention to the Holy? With facilitator Rev. Sarah Anders, we’ll bring our whole selves to a study of the “Wisdom Way of Knowing” as taught by the mystic priest and scholar Cynthia Bourgeualt, and we’ll spend time outdoors, experiencing ways nature can inform our spiritual lives. Please dress comfortably for movement and for being outdoors.

Please bring with you an element of nature that is spiritual to you, (whatever that means to you), that comes from a place you consider sacred ground. It could be your backyard, a local park, the beach or anywhere else.

Rev. Sarah Anders is Spiritual Director and co-founder of the new Church of the Wild, metro DC and former Minister for Faith Formation at Rockville United Church. She is a graduate of Bourgeualt’s Wisdom School, a facilitator for The Work That Reconnects (Joanna Macy) and a graduate of the Shalem Institute’s program Leading Contemplative Prayer Groups and Retreats.
