The Gift of Years Retreat Open to Commuters. Would you love to participate in The Gift of Years retreat, but prefer to sleep in your own bed? Spaces are now open to locals who prefer to commute to Spirit in the Desert. Participate in the program, the meals, the yoga, the camaraderie and the fun ~ everything but the overnight sleeping ~ for only $199!
On February 28 – March 2, 2022, retreat leader, ministry and spiritual director Margaret Schroeder brings her retreat on living abundantly in later years to Spirit in the Desert. Through sharing, journaling, reading, great food, quiet time, gentle yoga and more, retreat participants will leave with a new perspective on their remaining years and a commitment to continue to grow on their paths as they age. Writes Schroeder, “You will leave knowing yourself better and you will be more connected with your inner spirit.”
Our spiritual obligation is to age well, so that others who meet us have the courage and spiritual depth to do the same.Joan Chittister, The Gift of Years
