Women veterans face unique challenges, often carrying stress, grief, numbness and anxiety in their spirits and bodies. These days of reflection and wellness offer opportunities to come together in a supportive environment with others who share their experience.
As we prepare to enter the beautiful season of Autumn, we will trace creation’s journey in the spiral of life. We will create space for gratitude for the gifts that have sustained us, honor our world’s pain over suffering and injustice, and turn toward a new vision for ourselves and for our society. This virtual retreat day will be shaped by Joanna Macy’s wisdom in the book Engaging Active Hope. We are grateful to Catholic Climate Covenant for underwriting this day.
