Wintering Retreat

In the winter, the growth that happens might not be visible above ground. It is often a slowing, turning inward, deepening our roots. Enter the new year with intention, and join us for the winter installment of this life-giving retreat series.

Deepening Our Roots Winter Retreat:  January 12, 19, and 26

Online. 6-8pm CST

Facilitated by experienced Circles of Trust® facilitator Chris Johnson (The Milkweed Group) and me, and hosted by Prairie Oaks Institute, near Belle Plaine, Minnesota, whose mission is to be a catalyst for the rejuvenation of people and the planet.

“How we spend our days is of course 
how we spend our lives.”

Annie DIllard, The Writing Life

How do we cultivate more joy and meaning in our days while growing simplicity and intentionality throughout our lives? This retreat series, beginning in the new year with Winter (and continuing with more seasonal series throughout 2022), explores daily practices that seek holiness in the ordinary routine. The work of our lives, our heart’s deep calling, is related to but not synonymous with our jobs. This series honors our holistic vocation as vibrant, complex creatures in a messy and beautiful world.
