Northern Retreat is a tentative outline for the Contemplative Spirituality and Social Activism Retreat to take place in Northern Ireland this August. While some of the details are still subject to change, this will give you an idea of just how special this week is going to be. Remember, there are just a few openings left for this week — please let me or my colleague Gareth Higgins know if you’re interested in attending.

The days are getting colder, and the leaves are falling. Time to cozy up on the couch with a good book and a cup of coffee! Bring out your warmest blankets and throws. Embroidered with winter scenes or Christmas angels, throw blankets and pillows represent the spirit of the season and provide an easy way to change decor for the season.

Our retreat will be a 4 day event with five Internationally known teachers, who will provide a mini trade show. All hotel, meals, entertainment provided.
