Winter Wisdom: A Retreat for Women Veterans (onsite)

Maria DiBello, RSM

February 19, 2022

“In the midst of winter, I found there was within me, an invincible summer,” the poet Camus tells us.  These winter days call us to rest in the grace of stillness and listen for the wisdom hidden in darkness.  Through song, silence, poetry and sharing with other who share our hearts’ story, we will welcome the promise stirring below the surface of life.  Cranaleith’s hushed beauty will draw us to the wonder and joy waiting to astound us. The day will include a simple response in art.  Come, be renewed in winter’s blessing of courage and hope.

Transportation assistance available. Write to inquire.
