A Divine Sickness, A Healing Wound

A GilChrist Retreat

56265 Day Rd., Three Rivers, MI 49067

This is a contemplative retreat that looks at the potential transformational dimension of enduring illness and/or suffering, where often there is little or no relief. This retreat seeks to explore the self-healing dimension of the human psyche. How can stress, anxiety, depression or other forms of psychological imbalance slide down into our body and make us sick? How might we align ourselves with the inner mystery there in the images of our dreams with their healing potential? What is this Spirit within that can both wound and heal in order to make us whole? When we gather together what will be constellated by the place, the individuals who are present, and by the stories that are told of this Spirit that both wounds and heals?

This extended weekend retreat begins on Thursday, September 29th at 3:00PM and ends Sunday, October 2nd at 2:00PM. We typically have 6 group meetings during the weekend, one each morning and afternoon, unless we jointly decide to do otherwise. Sunday morning, we will have a communal brunch at WindHill. Retreatants are on their own for all other meals. In addition to the group sessions I will be offering a limited number of individual dream work sessions without extra charge throughout the weekend.

The cost of the retreat is $280.00, which includes your hermitage and its connection to all that GilChrist has to offer, http://fetzer.org/retreat-facilities/gilchrist/overview.
