About the event
This weekend will be a time of fun, renewal, learning and exploring nature. We will explore creation theology, with experiential wanders on the land surrounding Highlands Camp near Mt. Meeker, learning contemplative practices, with shared meals, activities, games, and time for solitude and rest for your soul. If you are interested in participating, please contact Becky Atkinson firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fun: The camp setting in the beauty of the Rockies near Mt. Meeker offers trails, striking vistas, and activities for recreation together.
Renewal: The whole weekend is invitational. Participate in whatever draws your interest, and take time to relax, renew in your own way. The Retreat Center offers spaces to read, relax, and outdoor trails to explore.
Learning: We will explore the Bible’s view on creation spirituality and renewal considering three great streams: the wisdom tradition, desert spirituality, and Celtic Christianity.
You will have the opportunity to learn:
- A Biblical understanding of dreamwork considering the examples of Joseph, Jacob, Daniel and Peter
- A contemplative foundation for prayer considering the lives of St. Francis and St. Brigid and others in the Christian tradition.
- We will consider the tradition of desert monasticism, and inner-work from the Biblical tradition including exploring the visionary imagination and working with the Shadow.
- We will explore our Hebrew and Celtic roots in its emphasis on the seasons and living in harmony with the creation.
Explore Nature: Highlands has stunning trails and a nature trail from easy to difficult. Weather permitting, we will spend lots of time outdoors during the day exploring nature.
