“Waking Up to Our Spiritual Power”

Join EcoFaith Recovery for our Fall Leadership Retreat. These quarterly retreats allow us to spend the day embodying some of EcoFaith Recovery’s core practices – leadership development, spiritual grounding and relational practices.

Whether you’ve been connected with EcoFaith Recovery for a long time or are brand new to this movement, please bring others from your faith community as we engage in the Practices of spiritual grounding, relational practices, telling our stories, seasonal actions, mentoring, and conscious leadership development.

Spend the morning deepening our engagement with the Practices of Spiritual Grounding, Relationally Connecting, Telling our Stories, Reflection and Evaluation. Spend the afternoon charting the way forward in interest groups where we will seek the Spirit’s guidance as we plan and organize ways we and our faith communities can engage take action for the recovery of human life and the healing of God’s creation.

Where:  St. Andrew Chapel (12405 SW Butner Road Beaverton, Oregon 97005) and the outdoor Sanctuary in the Firs

When:  9 am – 3 pm
