Awaken to Wholeness Women's Retreat

Awaken to Wholeness Women’s Retreat
Saturday, November 6, 9:00 am – 2:30 pm, Livestream

In this special retreat for women, the authors of The Hidden Life Awakened and special guest leaders will take us through sessions to help us choose good health for our mind, body and spirit. We will reflect deeply on how to transform from within, and learn to live as God designed us – wholehearted and well-balanced.  The retreat curriculum was inspired by the true story of Christian mystic Betty Skinner who journeyed from brokenness to wholeness through healing spiritual practice.

Three sessions will explore
brain and body health in the context of awakening
transformation through focused attention
awakening our spirit in its truest form in connection with Christ
