Desert Wisdom: Letting Go and Living Simply

Retreat Day on the theme: “Desert Wisdom: Letting Go and Living Simply” is offered on Wednesday, April 22 at 9:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. This retreat, facilitated by Sister Joan Driscoll, will focus on the wisdom of our desert mothers and fathers who can offer valuable insights for our lives today.

The Personal Retreat Days for next month take place on Tuesday, April 28 to Friday, May 1, and you are welcome to spend a day of stillness, or one to four days in the quiet of our Villa home.

For those who like to plan ahead, the Village Earth Spirituality & Practicum will be held again this year from July 3-10, 7:00 p.m. Friday to 1:00 p.m. Friday. This program provides a unique opportunity to integrate theological learning and spiritual understanding within the horizon of Earth’s presence and care.
