Boundless Compassion: Creating a Way of Life

In an era of violence, hostility and a “them or us” attitude, how can the wide divisions and enmities be lessened? What will it take to draw forth the loving-kindness inherent within one’s self and others?  What can be done to enable activation of the teachings of Jesus in order to live more compassionately?  Joyce Rupp will present a vision of life based on the Gospels with a compassionate approach to societal issues today. This four-day retreat flows from her recently published book, Boundless Compassion. The retreat offers practical approaches to changing hearts and re-invigorating hope amid the current cultural quagmire of discouragement.

Keynote Speaker: Joyce Rupp
“Spirituality and Well-Being in the Second Half of Life”

Both grace and challenge arise from the natural decline involved in the aging process. This epoch offers significant opportunity of growing spiritually when there is an awakening to the reality of diminishment, an openness to enter and explore the process, and a willingness to say “yes” to what is resisted and is eventually accepted. All of this leads to becoming a freer and ever more loving self, one who dwells contemplatively and peacefully in the final decades of life.

Coming Out of Exile: Welcoming Home What Our Spirit Is Missing

As we grow into wholeness we discover within ourselves aspects that need to be recognized, accepted, and integrated into our life. How do we call home these parts of ourselves that have been lost, ignored, forgotten, forced away or rejected? As we discover these banished aspects of ourselves and welcome them as catalysts for our spiritual transformation, we grow in assisting social transformation and contributing to greater peace in both our self and others.  Joyce will encourage a compassionate calling forth of what has been displaced by the use of song, prayer, presentations, quiet reflection, journaling, and dialogue.

Staying Connected to God in a Wounded Society

How quickly we can lose our focus on what is of greatest value when we are caught in the harried life that many of us experience. Along with this unending stress, we can get embedded in the hostility and divisive voices that fill social media and the daily news. Joyce Rupp brings to this retreat both wise insights and practical suggestions of how to stay anchored to the Source of Strength and Love. This is a time to pause, be refreshed and restored to a positive, faith-filled approach to life. The retreat offers creative, communal prayer, a presentation on the topic and quiet time to be at home with the Holy One.

Liberating the Heart: A Journey of Transformation

Spiritual liberation involves affirmation and acceptance of the enduring quality of one’s core goodness. It also requires a recognition of personal obstacles and a choice to become free from interior barriers that limit spiritual growth. This retreat day focuses on an in-depth approach to becoming a more whole human being, one whose vision and way of life becomes ever more transparent and animated. This inner freedom leads to an expansion of compassion and to dwelling in fuller harmony with both self and the larger world. Come and restore your joy, peace and passion for life.

Presentations by Joyce Rupp,  Music by Sara Thomsen

Anchors for the Soul: Finding Peace Amid a Harried Society

It’s easy, as we rush from one thing to the next, for us to feel off-balance, overwhelmed, or lacking in purpose. Anchors for the Soul offers a morning of re-orientation, rootedness and restored inspiration in order to live peacefully within the endless tasks and anxieties that come our way. This retreat will include creative, communal prayer; a presentation by Joyce Rupp; quiet reflection time and an opportunity for dialogue. Come and join in these brief hours that can bring us back to our center and remind us of the depth of stillness within ourselves.
