In our relentless busyness as ministers of the Church, we can often lose the rhythm between work and rest.  Has weariness set in?  Are others truly encountering Christ in their interactions with you? Take time to recharge through reflection, renewal and personal growth in fellowship with other disciples. You will assess how your life experiences and attitudes influence your energy level and commitment at work to become more centered, purposeful, and resilient. After the retreat, you are welcome to enjoy our beautiful grounds for further rest and reflection.

Today is national ice cream day! All women are invited to come and celebrate at JRH with Margaret Vogel

& Barbara Leggott as they share their reflections on ice cream. What do the nuts, cherries, whipped cream, chocolate sauce and other topping say to us? Do we think about the graces in our lives, our abundance of gifts and our attitude of gratitude while we pile on the toppings for our ice cream sundae?

We will enjoy making sundaes and sharing our thoughts while we eat.

Ignatius, Mindfulness and Brain Science

Price: $40.00

Date: August 2, 2017

Wednesday, August 2
9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Cost: $40

Presented by John Ropar, Ph.D., P.C.C.

500 years ago, St. Ignatius wrote his Spiritual Exercises. 21st century neuroscience has shown that his faith, insight, and intuition were remarkably farsighted. This program will explore the intersection of Ignatian spirituality, a “mindfulness” approach grounded in a 2,500-year-old Eastern practice, and interpersonal neurobiology from the latest discoveries on how our brain works. Participants will have the opportunity to grow intellectually, to pray and reflect on how their faith may be more deeply connected to their day-to-day lives, and to share these experiences with fellow participants.

Dr. John Ropar has a doctorate in counseling, extensive counseling experience at JCU and in private practice, and has been a certified spiritual director in Ignatian spirituality for eleven years.

Keeping Green with Hildegard of Bingen

Price: $135.00

Date: August 8, 2017

Tuesday, August 8- Wednesday, August 9
8:30 am -3:00 pm (both days)

Presented by Kim Langley, M.Ed.

Hildegard has been called one of the most important women of her age, and described as the “Sibyl of the Rhine” for her wisdom, and influential writings. We will dip into her fresh and nearly modern writings, explore her positive spirituality which focused on the “greening” of the soul, and have quiet time to rest and reflect. Imagine the refreshment of spirit to be gained from spending a retreat with Hildegard, who said “The earth of humankind contains all moisture, all verdancy, all germinating power. It is in so many ways fruitful.” Together we will hope to participate in the fruitfulness of this extraordinary woman.

Kim Langley, M.Ed. is a Spiritual Director and gives retreats and presentations for Parish Ministers, Stephens Ministers, teachers, and women’s groups.

Quo Vadis - “Where are you going?

Price: $40.00

Date: August 24, 2017

Thursday, August 24
9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Cost: $40

Presented by David Eich

To help answer this question, this program is based on the foundational belief that the encounters one has, coupled with the choices you make, will define the legacy you leave. Participants will reflect on those experiences that made a significant impact on their beliefs, values, and behaviors; recognize the consequences of ethical conflicts we all face in our personal and professional lives; and clarify a legacy roadmap built by the “5 most important things in life.”

Inspiring stories from an executive on what defines a bad day, a dad on facing  adversity, a wife and mother on the meaning of a perfect life, and a volunteer on the gift of forgiveness represent some examples in finding answers to the Quo Vadis question.

David Eich is a seasoned health care executive with extensive experience in marketing and community engagement. As a keynote speaker, retreat leader, and author of five books, David will tell you his greatest blessing is his family.

God alone suffices... St. Teresa's Bookmark

Come to this day of quiet and reflection, ready to sit at the feet of Teresa, allowing her to help you find equanimity in your busy, challenging life! The day will include input, time for personal reflection and group dialogue.
