Men and Spirituality (9/19-22)
What is in a man’s heart? As a man, you are possibly the only person who truly knows, and you may feel isolated without answers to the age-old questions: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Gather with other men in a safe contemplative setting to experience the true power of conscious vulnerability, and the healing alchemy of deeply connecting with other men seeking answers along their spiritual path. Then learn how to take your experience home if you wish and extend the conversation to engage like-minded men.
Wild Christ, Wild Earth, Wild Self: A Nature-Based Introduction to Seminary of the Wild (10/20-24)
This introduction to Seminary of the Wild offers an experiential, nature-based journey of apprenticeship into the wild mysteries of the kingdom of God and an invitation into deeper participation in the restoration of the world, tikkun olam. For those who long for a more soul-infused life and who yearn to find ways to reconnect to the natural world as a person of faith during a time of deep cultural unraveling. In addition to Seminary of the Wild Guides and Co-Founders Victoria Loorz, Bryan Smith, Brian Stafford and Matt Syrdal, we will be joined by special guests Fr. Richard Rohr and Geneen Marie Haugen.
Living on the Hinge of History with Defiant Hope: Engaging the Climate Crisis (11/10-15) — Rev. Dr. Jim Antal
How has the preservation of God’s creation been reduced to an ideological debate and why has climate denial persisted? What makes our current state of affairs a theological emergency? How are we to understand that God has provided us with everything we need? This retreat is based on Jim Antal’s book, Climate Church, Climate World, which was featured in the Chicago Tribune.
