Transitions and New Beginnings

April 5 @ 6:00 pm April 7 @ 1:00 pm

Presented by Barb Bickford and Sandy Salvo

We have all experienced transitions – some by choice and some not – including new jobs, retirement, relationship changes, illness, grief, or new roles such as caregiver or empty-nester.

During a transition, you may feel stuck, angry, lost or lonely. You may be dealing with ongoing grief and not be able to move on. You may long for a time to step out of the busyness of daily life and simply rest. Or you may just want to be in the company of people who understand while you wait to find meaning in the midst of loss.

We often cross thresholds or sacred markers between where we’ve been and where we hope to go. But some transitions take longer to pass through, and it can take time to decide what your next steps should be. Join us for a safe, gentle, and creative experience as we explore how to move with grace and intention through our “Transitions and New Beginnings.”

In the restorative, peaceful setting of St. Anthony Spirituality Center, we will pause to talk, play and worship together. Through intuitive painting, journaling, and mindful movement, we will connect to a source of inner guidance and listen deeply to the messages that are arising.

Your guides for this retreat are Barb Bickford and Sandy Salvo, who have both lived through significant life transitions and are willing to walk with you for a time as you walk through yours.

Come, join us for a restorative weekend of healing and movement toward new beginnings that we choose to create!

Barb Bickford designs and leads transformational workshops and helps people lead more engaging and effective meetings. She lives and gardens in Stillwater, MN with her husband and an elderly cat.

Sandy Salvo is a retreat planner, mindfulness meditation teacher, Qigong instructor, and leadership trainer. She and her husband live in Middleton, WI and enjoy anything and everything to do with water, nature, and grandkids
