Post-Covid Spirituality: A Deep Dive into the Wider “We” Retreat at Prairiewoods
August 13 @ 6:30 pm - August 15 @ 1:00 pm$230
Where do we find ourselves spiritually after a year and a half immersed in a global pandemic? In the spirit of Prairiewoods’ process of PanDeepening and Go Deeper Thursdays, we offer a weekend retreat to learn and practice some of the skills we need to expand our consciousness about who “We” are in these unprecedented times. Join us at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) or via Zoom as we explore and practice: (1) our self-concept and expression of our own unique role in this Age Beyond the Anthropocene (human-centeredness); (2) relanguaging some concepts around spirituality, community, creation and God-imagery to help us during this transition; and (3) mapping our breath and collective presencing in our circles of trust. Facilitators Laura Weber, PhD, and Ellen Bruckner will guides us to read and enter into conversations of the more intimate circles of which we are a part, such as our families, neighborhoods and communities of many kinds. Saturday evening and Sunday morning will offer extended quiet time for processing what we’ve explored in the three sessions Friday night, Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon. This will be a hybrid in-person and Zoom retreat, and those who participate via Zoom will be online and in break-outs Friday evening, 6:30–9 p.m. Central; Saturday morning, 9 a.m.–noon; and Saturday afternoon, 2–5 p.m. Breaks will also be included in our online time. Also, we encourage everyone to consider joining Go Deeper every third Thursday as a way of continuing to practice our skills with this learning community. Prior participation in Go Deeper Thursdays is not a prerequisite. The cost is $230 and includes sessions, lodging and all meals. The commuter fee is $180 and includes sessions, Saturday lunch and dinner, and Sunday lunch. The Zoom fee is $100 and includes three sessions.
