Belonging, Not Belongings: A Retreat on Community, Simplicity, and Sustainable Living
April 6 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$35.00
In a time of great social and ecological upheaval, it is vital that we forge alternative ways of being in the world. During our retreat, we’ll contemplatively grapple with and explore possible lifestyles that go beyond the consumer paradigm and instead generate connection and kinship. Drawing from examples as diverse as permaculture, Scripture, and 20th century luminaries Thomas Merton and Dorothy Day, we will inspire one another to re-define The Good Life.
Saturday, April 6, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. $35 fee.
