This retreat is for women over 50 who are adjusting to change in their lives. There are times in our life journey when we are visited with sudden or unwanted change. We will accept God’s invitation to re-imagine our lives and become aware of what brings hope and energy to this second half of life. God invites me to “Follow my bliss.” What am I passionate about now, and what is true for my authentic self? God is still creating me! Take some time for yourself and God before the holidays begin. Commuters welcome: 7:00 – 9:00 PM Thursday and 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM on Friday. Donation: $75. Breakfast and lunch included for all.
