Retreat Nurtures Spiritual Growth
Shirley Cunningham, a counselor and spiritual director for over 20 years, will lead a retreat, Kissed by God: Holy Women Create, at Sinsinawa Mound Aug. 9-11. Cunningham will guide participants in inviting holy women to lead us to deeper trust in inner wisdom, grace and creativity. She will draw from the lives of Miriam the dancer; Hildegard the artist, musician and writer; and Teresa of Avila and Therese of Lisieux, the writers, as well as Tekakwitha. Participants will gain spiritual practices in journaling, poetry, music, dreamwork, prayer and meditation. Skill or experience in those practices is not necessary; only a spirit of adventure and wonder are needed. Bring a notebook for journaling and simple art materials, if you wish.
The registration deadline is Aug. 2, and the fee is $191 for an overnight guest and $118 for a commuter.

Sinsinawa Mound, the motherhouse for the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters, is located in southwest Wisconsin on County Road Z, off Highway 11, about five miles northeast of Dubuque.
