About us

As theologian Norman Wirzba writes, “We can never only bite into one thing. Food is about the relationships that join us to the earth, fellow creatures, loved ones and guests, and ultimately God.” This evening of feasting together, co-sponsored by community partners, combines the best of a home-grown potluck with the richness of spiritual reflection. Come for the meal and, if you are able, bring something to share—as long as it has a story: Grandma’s recipe, harvest from your garden, foraged mushrooms, fish your children caught, or honey from your bees? Imagine the flavors and conversations. Then, if you like, stay for a lovely musical prayer in the style of Taizé. Because this event has been underwritten by generous sponsors, half of all donations will benefit the ministry of Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf.

This potluck event is part of a weekend-long series of events related to Food & Faith:

(Friday) Of the Garden: Serving and Reflecting at Farm and Food Shelf

(Friday thru Sunday) Com-Panions: Do This in Remembrance of Me

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Retreats inspire me to continue to practice and fuel my journey. I always find specified intention and feel it projects me closer to my purpose. Shannon

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
