Contemplative Soul Care Retreat
Enter a 5 Day experience of Contemplative practices, Soul Care Music, stillness, labyrinth walks, forest paths, time for personal reflection, journaling and opportunities for receiving Spiritual Direction.
Facilitated by Cathy AJ Hardy, this retreat will offer group times of meditation, song and spiritual practices as well as personal time for rest and rejuvenation.
Rivendell Retreat Centre offers a unique location on Bowen Island, a place of peace and quiet away from the noise, distractions and pressures of the city, with magnificent views of mountains, forests and seas… a sanctuary with a network of trails that offer the opportunity for discovering new intimacy with God while exploring forest paths and the wonders of creation. Located on 6 1/2 acres atop Cates Hill on Bowen Island; a short ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay and West Vancouver.
The retreat will include meditations rooted in the Christian mystical tradition such as lectio and centering prayer. We will also engage in creative tasks such as mandela drawings, collage, dream-work, etc. Cathy will offer music and poetry during many of the group times together.
Cost: $650 (includes GST). ($325 deposit upon registration, balance paid at Retreat. Please note $150 of deposit is non-refundable)
“I have been on many retreats but none have been as profoundly moving as this weekend was for me. I would not have thought it possible to experience so much, open so much and change so much in just two days. I have a feeling that, going forward, I am going to think of my life as before the Soul Care Weekend and after the Soul Care Weekend. Thank you Cathy!” (Antoinette June 2018 Soul Care Retreat Participant Mt. Carmel, Niagara Falls)
