Witness – Grief, Trauma, and Transition: Quiet day of reflection
September 11 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Recently, I heard the phrase, “grief is in season.”I believe it captures the essence of these days. We have all been experiencing loss in some way. For some, the loss is of relationships or wellness, or even the life of a loved one. For others it is the uncovering of hidden trauma, held in the body, perhaps for generations. And all of us are going through transition due to the social upheaval of pandemic. What kind of people are we? What kind of person am I becoming? These questions have moved out of our private musings and into our everyday conversations.
On Saturday, September 11, 2021, Naomi Wenger will be facilitating a Quiet Day from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm to bear witness together to our griefs, acknowledge our trauma and support one another in our transitions.
Join her at The Hermitage Community in Three Rivers, Michigan for a quiet day of witness and reflection. There will be ample personal reflection time and communal rituals as we share the day together.
Lunch is included in the retreat; please mention any dietary restrictions at the time of registration.
Suggested Donation: $50-75; we gratefully receive whatever you are able to give for this Quiet Day.
This retreat is offered in collaboration with the Sister Barbara Anne Hallman, OSF, Memorial Fund
