Happy 2019!! We are getting closer to the winter retreat! And because some of you have been asking some questions, I thought about writing a FAQ list. Shall we?
Who is this retreat for? Any person over 18 years old interested in cultivating their spirituality.
Do I have to be a believer or practice any religion in order to participate? No. The retreat is designed from a Christian worldview of life, but you don’t have to be a christian to participate in it.
Do I have to be a woman in order to participate? No. The retreat is designed by a woman, so it will have a feminine lens of life and spirituality, but you don’t have to be a woman to participate.
Do I have to be a writer or artist to participate? No. I will encourage you to develop your creativity and cultivate your spirituality through different practices (in nature, through watercolour, rituals and writing) but you don’t have to be an artist or a writer to participate. We will use these disciplines (basically watercolour, photography and writing) as tools to enter into the spiritual dimension, silence and connexion with our Creator. There won’t be “technical” clases about certain disciplines but rather we’ll use the disciplines to help us connect with God. Does it make sense?
Do I have to be in silence all weekend? No. The retreat aims to foster silence and contemplation. I will give a lot of space for that, but there will be moments of storytelling and sharing, listening to the voice of God together and listening to each others’ stories.
Why in the winter? I personally feel like winter is a great time for introspection, inner exploration and search for the transcendent. We usually make plans and goals for the year this month. Why not doing this along with other like minded people?
Well, that’s all for now. Let me know if you have any other questions! Write here in the comments or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you coming?
