New Year 2017 Odonata Women’s Retreat: “Space and Place” in Our Lives, in Our Work

 

As much as ever, we need both place to gather as women together and space to tell our stories and hear ourselves into being. Join Sarah Sadie Busse and Odonata for this brief getaway, designed to refill the wells and restore the spirit. This opportunity offers a chance to join other like-minded women after the bustle and activity of the holiday season.  We’ll gather for a day of conversation and reflection around the themes of ‘space’ and ‘place,’ and how those themes feed into—or challenge—your life and your work (and play).

The Lakeview Room at Holy Wisdom’s Retreat and Guest House will be ours on Saturday, January 7, 2017 from 9 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon. The day will include a presentation with exercises in the morning, discussion, and time for your own work. Separate rooms are available for those who seek the greater solitude of an overnight stay. Creativity prompts will be available for anyone who needs a jump start, and one on one consultations with Sarah Sadie can be scheduled in advance.

**update: a few people have asked about coming in on Friday afternoon/evening, especially due to winter travel. I have worked with Holy Wisdom to make this option available. Prices below.

Coffee and tea will be available to us throughout the day and lunch for the group will be provided by the Sisters at the Monastery, and is included in the cost. For those staying longer, the Monastery will continental breakfast in the Guest House and dinner Friday night in the main hall. Cost included in the price. Dinner Saturday is on your own.

One Day at Holy Wisdom: September 10, 2016

A retreat when life won’t allow for an entire weekend away, this opportunity offers a chance to join other like-minded folk for a day of conversation and reflection, your own creative work and play, and plenty of space for walking meditation and relaxation.

The St. Benedict Room at Holy Wisdom’s Retreat and Guest House will be ours on Saturday, September 10, 2016 from 9 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon. With chairs and table space, there will be room for us to spend a day together in companionable work and conversation. Separate rooms are available at additional cost for those who seek solitude.
