Come to the water to renew your connection with life’s animating Spirit. During this sacred time, you’ll be invited to consider the nature of happiness and question where it might reside in order that you may more fully experience its fruit. While sabbath time can be as unplanned and open as you seek, there will be opportunities to gather with others for reflection and prayer throughout the week. Spiritual direction is available upon request.
