We are living in a time of global trauma that impacts us on both the social and personal levels. Our minds, bodies, and spirits cannot help but to absorb some of the trauma, which can create weariness, anxiety, and pain. We need space to rest and heal. As people of faith seeking to bring God’s love and justice into the world, we need to cultivate the spiritual practices and resources that ground us in our sacred worth and belovedness and empower us to be a healing presence for others. Join wisdom guide, Giovanni Arroyo, and an ecumenical leadership team for a half-day online retreat offered in Spanish and created specifically for the Latinx community.

This online retreat will follow the Academy for Spiritual Formation rhythm of prayer and worship, interactive learning from wisdom guides, silence and rest, and holy listening and conversation. Participants will also be provided with pre-retreat content and prompts for reflection along with suggestions for going deeper after the retreat.
