Wild Contemplative and the Wilderness Within

March 2, 2024
9:30am – 4:30pm
$95/person, lunch included

Explore the idea of yourself as a Wild Contemplative… what might that mean and how might you embrace it for yourself?  In the spiritual journey, what might the wilderness represent?  Is it a place of desolation or invitation or both?  

Join Spiritual Director Linda Albert and Spiritual Director and Naturalist Julie Miller as we spend a day indoors and outside, in community and solitude, walking and resting, in conversation and in spiritual practice exploring this identity and territory within. Walking will consist of no more than 2 – 3 miles and will be more of a saunter than a cardio workout.  The pace of the day is reflective and the walking portions a spiritual practice.  Rain or shine as we will have access to indoor spaces.

 

Spring Wildflower Hike-FULL*

March 16, 2024
9:30am – 3:00pm
$35/person, lunch included

Join us for an inspirational springtime hike to witness the many kinds and types of wildflowers that grow at The Bishop’s Ranch. These living gems respond to a universal imperative – blooming in their own time and demonstrating the remarkable movement of nature toward diversity. Be prepared to walk five miles at a rambling pace, with several hundred feet of elevation change, taking time to discuss what we find.

*Register for the hike to be added to the waitlist. 

 

Holy Week: The Triduum with the Holy Women

March 28-31, 2024
3 nights/8 meals (Thursday dinner-Sunday breakfast)
$395 – Commuter (meals included)
$550 – Shared occupancy
$795 – Single occupancy

A contemplative Holy Week retreat weaving together ancient liturgies with creative arts practices, inspired by the faithful and compassionate examples of the holy women who accompanied Jesus on his journey: Mary Magdalene, Mother Mary and the other female disciples.

Join us at Bishop’s Ranch for a deeply embodied and emotionally rich retreat that invites you to draw closer to the Easter story by experiencing it through the eyes, feet and hands of the myrrh-bearing women of courage and compassion who were there for both the crucifixion and resurrection

We will be offering a creative space to express your deepest longing and losses through singing, drawing, painting, making nature mandalas and writing prayer-poems as we cry and laugh, sing, dance and dream together in community, experiencing Holy Week from an inclusive perspective with an emphasis on the women disciples.

Co-lead by Kayleen Asbo, Ph.D, singer-songwriter Robin O’Brien and liturgist/interfaith minister and Hebrew/New Testament Scholar Lizzie Berne De Gear, Ph.D.

Registration closes March 22, 2024.
