Time of Respite & Renewal for Spiritual Caregivers

How long has it been since you have set aside time to intentionally care for yourself?  Often we walk with others following natural or human disasters, listen to the stories of loss and pain, and give freely of ourselves to assist as best we are able.   Unless we periodically step outside of our caregiving role to replenish ourselves, there comes a time when we have nothing left to give.  This retreat is designed to give you time to rest, to share your own stories, and to care for yourself in a supportive community.
