Joy, Gratitude, Play, Rest: Bringing our Lives Back in Focus

Bringing our fragmented, frenzied daily lives into focus: tangible ways to welcome balance, meaning and joy into our days.

Do you feel exhausted, overwhelmed, burned out?  Or maybe just off center or in need of a little extra support?  Regardless of our age, our work and stress levels we can all benefit from a listening ear, an authentic supporter, a sounding board and accountability partner.  Someone outside our inner circle that can help us see outside of ourselves and to help remind us of our purpose and that we are part of a bigger story.  During this weekend through various workshops and activities we will learn techniques in mindfulness, gratitude and intentionality that will bring about a mind shift toward the positive, toward seeing our abundance and toward living out God’s calling.  We will also use our collective wisdom to support and share with one another tools for the journey. 

“She equips herself with strength And makes her arms strong  She sees that her gain is good; Her lamp does not go out, but it burns continually through the night.  Proverbs 31:17-18”
