MAKING TIME

Retreats, Workshops, Reunions + Meetings
 

Retreats, Workshops, and Reunions provide an opportunity for spiritual renewal. We encourage time set apart for renewal, intention, and deeper engagement. Stepping away from life’s daily struggles allows space and time for restoration, renewal, and rest. We create customized programs, using a variety of creative tools: presentations, reflection, meditation, music, movement, silence, writing, and sharing. We create a safe environment which allows participants to identify and claim foundational stories, tell their own stories, and begin to articulate and experience a way forward— a new Sustaining Story. (Retreats may be designed for 1-5 days.)

Meeting Facilitation  Our facilitation and leadership skills allow us to manage any sort of organizational meeting: planning, reimagining, setting goals and timetables, brainstorming, reinvigorating, etc. We can facilitate your agenda in a thoughtful, creative, integrative manner.

Our Associates have worked with a variety of groups, including:

  • 12 Step/ Recovery

  • Academic/ School Teams

  • Pastoral Ministers and Leaders

  • Management Teams

  • Campus Ministry

  • Marriage Preparation Couples

  • Social Justice Groups

  • Non-Profit Boards and Membership
