Beginning the Sunday before what is commonly known as Ash Wednesday for Christians, we began a time of intentional retreat at The Church Within. While it wasn’t like those wonderful times away at a beautiful retreat center in the woods, it was a time that we set apart for specific contemplations and practices that we engaged on our own and in conversation with others. And, while the framework of the retreat was built around some of the ideas of Lent, it was a Lenten Retreat as only The Church Within could do; we drew, as we always do, from many paths in order to truly open ourselves to this time of transformation.
Below you will find links that lead to the recordings for the Sundays of the retreat as well as the handouts that were distributed for the practices you are invited to each week. No matter the season, this retreat can empower deep and meaningful shift in your life. Take time to listen and engage the practices with honesty and integrity. Practice on your own, with a friend, or with a small group of friends. Let yourself rise again in your life. Let the light of the divine within you shine brightly for this world.
Blessings on your journey.
