Our first retreat date has been set for January 16-17 at DeGray Lake Resort State Park. Catherine Lowry and Karen Akin will lead the retreat. We will explore the art and significance of storytelling. Stories are multifaceted; they are worlds to be explored, mirrors for self-reflection, maps that are useful for charting (or measuring) a life. Stories can help us heal, build community, and inspire. The cost for the retreat is $150 per person. Contact Karen Akin at 227-0000 or email@example.com for more information or to register for the retreat. Registration deadline is Thursday, January 8.
