A two-night Retreat at Lawrence Lodge at De Sales Center.
We have all turned on the TV to watch the news and have been over whelmed by the violence, inconceivable bigotry and racism dished up nearly every day. On top of that, the sexual abuse scandals that have rocked trusted institutions like churches, government, business and entertainment. All quickly followed by our own national inability to find ethical and civil ways to meet the complicated needs of citizens and neighbors alike. If we are honest and perceptive, we too often see our gender, us men, at the lead of all this chaos and meanness. The temptation is to click the channel to some empty headed comedy and zone out. But what if we did not do this? What if we stayed in the moment of our frustration, invite compassion and let it teach us? What if we did not zone out but remained in the painful moment?

We all know the value of nature to speak to, enliven, and calm our souls. Save the date for more information on this weekend in nature at Pilgrim Park, which will be primarily time for us to be with and listen to nature – not long talks about it. More information will be forthcoming.
