Supporting a Healthy Spirituality While Living with Chronic Illness or Pain

Saturday, August 18, 2018 | 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Chronic illness not only affects our physical bodies but it also takes its toll on the spiritual life. Gentle care of the spirit is a vital part of wellness. This one-day retreat is specifically for men and women with any kind of chronic pain or illness (cancer, heart disease, kidney or liver disease, Parkinson’s, etc.). You will be offered suggestions and given an opportunity to explore and experience simple ways to comfort and care for your physical and spiritual self. The session will conclude with a blessing and healing ritual. Caregivers are welcome to attend.

This day of reflection begins with continental breakfast at 9:30 a.m. and will conclude by 3:30 p.m. The cost of $45 includes a delicious noon buffet meal.
