September 26 – 28, 2014 -The Gift of Sacred Space Jubilee Alumni Retreat

The VISION of this retreat is to ‘be’ in the company of the Divine and like-minded people while becoming aware and sensitive to a variety of sacred spaces, internally and externally, that support our own and others’ well-being.

In the spirit of Ontario Jubilee, this weekend will provide opportunity:
~ to consider the gift of sacred space
~ to connect with Jubilee alumni,
~ sit contemplatively with one another ~ browse through spirituality books
~ spend time with experienced spiritual directors meeting at Five Oaks the same weekend.

Note: Please bring objects that help you ‘be’ intentional in connecting with the Holy: i.e. music CD’s, coloured scarves, candles, art pieces, seasonal pieces from nature. Additional items will be available to create your own sacred space.

This event is held concurrently with a Jubilee-hosted Contemplative Supervision Conference.

Registration starts on Friday night 6-7 p.m.
