    • 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
    • Creative Life Center at St. Ambrose Episcopal Church, 7520 South Boulder Road, Boulder, CO

    Description:

    Curious about what your unique inner landscape looks like?  Interested in looking at your inner self with a non-verbal approach?  Learn more about who you are using contemplative exploration through color and shape.  You will quickly discover you can trust your inner intuitive process to create an oil pastel drawing you had no idea you could complete when you began.  There is a great deal of freedom and joy in creating a non-verbal expression.  You naturally knew how to color when you were a child.  That wisdom, curiosity and openness are all you need to enjoy this experience! 


    Presenter:

    Suzanne Frazier is a working artist with a studio in Prospect New Town. She combines a BFA degree in Studio Arts from the University of Colorado with a BA degree in Philosophy from Lake Erie College to create a new approach to art making. www.SuzanneFrazier.com

    • St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, 1303 S Bross Ln, Longmont, CO 80501
    Topic
    Since 2012, the U. S has about 7.5 million more Americans who are no longer active in religion. Dr. Ilia Delio believes that people are leaving faith traditions by the thousands because religion is no longer relevant to our culture. We, as spiritual directors, will be seeing more people who identify as “seekers” or as “spiritual but not religious” and, in fact, we ourselves may be categorized as such­­. It may now be time to begin looking to the things of the 21st century.  We may need to seek the Wisdom that will enable us to read the language of technology and science in order to expand the meaning of the Holy, for them as well as for us.

    • Sacred Heart Jesuit Retreat House, 4801 North Highway 67, Sedalia, CO 80135-0185

    Topic:

    Using “inner garden” as a deep metaphor for our souls, we will use this retreat time to explore the ground, particularly our images and experiences of the divine, that hold our soul; the soul plants, especially those deep soul gifts, thriving or perhaps struggling in our soul garden along with whatever weeds that may be interfering with our soul plants.  We will explore those practices that nourish or diminish our souls, and finally look at what it might mean to take the energy and wisdom of our soul work into the world.  This retreat is designed to allow participants to do their own deep soul work with teaching times and group sharing as guides.

    Find Your Sanctuary: Create places of Rest, Renewal and Refuge with Terry Hershey 


    Everyone has a sanctuary. If only in our mind. Even if we can’t name it, we know of its power. It is a place where you do not owe anyone and where no one owes you.  We are wired to need grounding and renewal and less hurry.  And yet, we make choices—with our time and with our days—that are detrimental to our emotional and spiritual well-being. In sanctuary, we let thislife in. Every bit. In sanctuary we can be wholehearted; whether grief or gladness or sadness or joy. We make space to see and to be seen. We make space to welcome, to offer comfort and hope.


    Terry Hershey is an author, humorist, inspirational speaker, dad, ordained minister, golf addict, and smitten by French wine. He divides his time between designing sanctuary gardens and sharing his practice of “pausing” and “sanctuary,” to help us do less and live more. Terry’s book, Sanctuary: Creating Places for Grace in Your Life, offers the permission to slow down and to be gentle with ourselves, in a world that demands More-Bigger-Faster. Most days, you can find Terry out in his garden–on Vashon Island in the Puget Sound—because he believes that there is something fundamentally spiritual about dirt under your fingernails.
