About This Event

This event has been rescheduled to Oct. 8! Click here for details.

When pressures and limitations seem to outweigh our sense of strength and possibility, how do leaders avoid becoming disheartened? By learning how to tell a more life-giving story. Narrative Theory suggests that the ongoing discipline of leadership requires crafting a more genuine story, one that is both rooted in the reality of the moment and expands our sense of mission. During tough times, our narratives often become rote.  Therefore, it is all the more incumbent that we reflect upon the stories we are telling ourselves as our communities navigate the difficulties of transition, loss, and diminishment. Come individually or as a team to join Diane Millis, author of Re-Creating a Life (SDI Press, 2019) along with Sam Rahberg, author of Enduring Ministry (Liturgical Press, 2017) for a day of collaborative reflection and an opportunity to discern new stories waiting to be told.

Why Retreat?

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

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane

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.
