Retreats and Workshops

All retreats and workshops occur when there is enough interest among a group of people who are wanting to establish understanding with others and use the support of others in developing deeper meaning and understanding with themselves and their lives.

Both retreat and workshop dates and times are announced with a six-week advance notice. Some seminars are half-day. Some workshops can be a full-day, a day and a half, and two full days.
