Swannanoa Valley Friends Meeting 2016 Retreat

  • Theme:  Fireside Tales:  Sharing Our Spiritual Journeys
  • When:   Friday, November 11, 2016, 5:30 to 9 PM;
  •                  Saturday, November 12, 9 AM to 9 PM

Join this opportunity to share and listen deeply to each other as we reflect on our personal journeys, focusing on turning points and critical decisions, experiences of calling and leading, low points and transformative suffering, and high points and peak experiences.

Explore a variety of ways of telling those stories, which could include the creative arts, creating a communal timeline, movement, paired-sharing and whole-group sharing – in safe, sacred, playful spaces that invite participants to share their own stories in different ways.

 If you are interested in planning, supporting, or facilitating an experience at the retreat related to any of the topics planned, please contact Susan Murty at or at 319-631-8059.  We Hope to See You All at the Retreat!
