“The restful eye lives out its poverty and forgets its inner harvest.” – John Donahue
This retreat day will focus on how to keep your “inner harvest” clear and bright by releasing resentments and imprisonment from the past, so that you can accept the invitation to new freedom. Are you a person, who is struggling with a past wounding? Do you ask, “Where is God in all this inner pain and suffering”? Do you wonder about your image and/or belief in God or a Higher Power? Can you find peace with yourself and in your life? Maybe you just want a get-away-place for a cold Saturday in January. This retreat may be just right for you!
Franciscan Sister Linda Wieser will lead participants in finding new freedoms and new potential through forgiveness. She will guide participants to do their own work through prayer and meditations, input, alone time and rituals that may help this transformation. She will use segments of the movie, The Shack, by William Paul Young, as a resource for the stages of forgiveness. Recommendation: Familiarize yourself with the movie or book The Shack prior to the retreat.
Sister Linda Wieser has been teaching meditation, offering Spiritual Direction and serving as a Certified Life Coach for over 30 years.
