Sanctuary: Creating Spaces to Rest, Renew & Live  with Rev. Terry Hershey
7:00pm Friday, November 22 to 1:30pm Sunday, November 24
How can I make life-giving choices if my spirit or heart is on empty? This weekend retreat is an opportunity for sanctuary, care and presence in the moment. Care of any kind-compassion, generosity, service, ministry, teaching, giving-begins with and is nourished by self-care. Or in the words of Charlie Parker, “If it ain’t in you it can’t come out of your horn.” Care begins with the power of pause; with the intentional choices we make about being present…passion, grace, play, laughter and wholeheartedness. Terry Hershey is an author, ordained minister, humorist, and inspirational speaker. 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. Cost: per person/shared $240; single $340; commuter $150
