An Advent Retreat with Joan Stockbridge
“The season of Advent means there is something on the horizon the likes of which we have never seen before…
So stay. Sit. Linger. Tarry. Ponder. Wait. Behold. Wonder.
There will be time enough for running. For rushing. For worrying. For pushing.
For now, stay. Wait. Something is on the horizon.”
–Jan Richardson Night Visions, Searching the Shadows of Advent and Christmas
Please join us for a morning away from holiday worries and the to-do list. With Joan Stockbridge as your expert guide, tune into your heart to be present to what’s stirring in your soul.
Drawing upon Advent themes of pondering and waiting, Joan will share the wisdom of poetry, creative processes, and more to help you explore questions like “What is stirring in you? What new life is waiting to be born? What is on your horizon?” There will be optional opportunities to share in small groups and in the whole circle. The pace will be contemplative, with a sense of spaciousness.
Come, rest, gaze inward, and explore. Experience some grounding, calm, and a sense of new life waiting to emerge. Depart with an inner sense of hope, strength, and resilience as you prepare for a new beginning.
