Wonder, Awe & Amazement: Portals to Divine Presence.  This retreat will provide a relaxed, contemplative environment for nurturing awareness of wonder, awe and amazement in daily life.  We will follow Mary Oliver's Instructions for Living a Life: "Pay attention, be astonished, tell about it."


There will be time for rest, prayer, poetry, music, movement, time in nature and group sharing.  You are invited to come and rest your body, mind and soul in the beautiful fall season at St. Andrew's House.  The retreat begins at 4:00pm on October 21 and ends after lunch on October 24th.  Cost is $375, which includes lodging, meals and materials.  You can reserve your space with a nonrefundable deposit of $100, with the balance due when you arrive at the retreat.


Recommended reading for this retreat is Dacher Keltner's award-winning book, Awe: The New Science of Everyday Wonder and How It Can Transform Your Life.
