Spring Day Retreat: What Are You Yearning to Grow?

$75.00 – $90.00

What Are You Yearning to Grow?

A Spring Day Retreat with Leslie Wagner and Dianna Amorde

“Spring won’t let me stay in this house any longer!
I must get out and breathe the air deeply again.” –Gustav Mahler

Spring energy is noted for inspiring seeds to be planted, flowers to bloom, and new growth wherever the eye can see in backyards, parks, and the depths of wilderness. Join us for a day to tap into the inspiration and spring vitality of nature.

Step back from your daily cares and to-do lists to pause and ponder what is seeking to grow within you. What needs to be watered and encouraged to bloom?

“Though no one can go back and make a brand-new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.” –Carl Bard

*The formal program begins at 10am; however, we encourage you to arrive as early as 9:30am to see the grounds, enjoy a cup of coffee, and get settled for this day of rejuvenation and planting seeds.

With plenty of time for solitary walks, journaling on the porch, rich conversations with like-hearted souls, or exploring the labyrinth, Leslie and Dianna will offer reflections, poetry and more to support you in listening to your inner voice and the earth’s wisdom.

Come and be rejuvenated by the spring energy of Mother Earth and the circle of friends we co-create together. Leave renewed and inspired to grow some aspect of your life that has only been waiting for you to hear and heed its call.

Dianna Amorde

With more than 20 years leadership experience and ten years as Eremos’ Executive Director, Dianna brings her passion for helping people trust their inner knowing to her work at Eremos. Author of Aha! Moments: When Intellect & Intuition Collide and the weekly reflections in Eremos’ newsletters, Dianna views her service with Eremos as a natural part of her desire to inspire people to trust their inner wisdom. She has witnessed the profound life changes that taking time to go within to connect with Spirit can bring to people and their communities.

Time among the trees and birds on early morning walks continues to renew her in these challenging times. And she always makes time to greet any four-legged friends she sees along the way.
