We will gather each night for 45 mins and participants will be asked to dedicate 30 mins to prayer each day. Retreat Box will be sent Nov 29th.

Wounded Healers: A Lenten Retreat for Busy People

Mar 13-16 - $30

Join us for this virtual event as we explore the healings of Jesus and how they relate to our own life. All too often, we can become so focused on the needs of those around us that we lose track of what is happening in our own hearts and minds. We believe one cannot give what they do not possess. We will explore our own self-care and “time apart” and the importance of rest throughout this retreat. We will gather each night for 45 mins and participants will be asked to dedicate 30 mins to prayer each day. Retreat Box will be sent March 1st.

The Way Retreat for Women: A Healing Retreat for Female Survivors of Abuse

May 20-22 - $250

Have you experienced or are you experiencing dread, confusion, deep hurt, betrayal or anger when you think of the abuse you have suffered? Or maybe you are feeling nothing at all. You have every right to these feelings…they are natural reactions to the trauma you have survived.

You may be asking yourself:

  • What do I do with all of this?
  • How will confronting my abuse experience affect my life?
  • How will I ever recover my trust in people, God, my Church again?
  • Does it really matter?
  • Do I matter?

The Way is the path to take to find answers to these and many other questions for which your heart, mind, body, and soul have been searching. This is where your healing journey begins. These three days of guided meditations and prayer crafted around the Stations of the Cross will show you the steps Christ took to overcome dread, confusion, deep hurt, betrayal and anger not only for his experience of abuse – which culminated in his death on the cross and new life in the Resurrection – but for your abuse as well. You can choose to walk The Way with him, learn his ways, transform your pain and suffering into a new life, the life God has always wanted for you but that the sins of another has disfigured in countless ways.

Out of the Woods: The Journey to Long-Term Recovery

Jun 3-5

Often in 12 step rooms we hear newcomers being told, “It takes three to 5 years to get out of the woods.” This advice suggests patience with all that must be learned and experienced in those early years. Later, near the five-year mark, many of us realize that it can take that long just to get into the woods and to make real changes in our thinking and behavior. But if we stay and work the program, a wonderful thing happens: long-term recovery takes hold. A new and wonderful life begins. Join author and teacher, Diane Cameron and a group of women in recovery for a weekend of recovery strategy, conversation, laughter, healing and reflection on the journey to long-term recovery. This retreat is for all women from all Twelve-step programs. Bring your friends, your sponsor, and sponsee.

BIO: Diane Cameron is a teacher and speaker. She has led retreats on recovery and writing and spirituality for many years. She is the author of, “Out of the Woods—A Woman’s Guide to Long-term Recovery”, and “Looking for Signs—essays on spirituality and community.”Diane is a Times Union columnist, yoga teacher, spiritual director and recovery coach.

Stillpoint

Sep 9-11 - $175

Take a weekend to nourish body, mind, and soul as we enter into the beautiful fall season at Pyramid Life Center. This retreat will focus on the theme of “meditation in motion” and will include practices to help us discover the divine in the everyday. We will dabble in a little of everything: journaling, lectio divina, meditation, collage-as-prayer, music and more. Optional daily yoga classes will be offered by the retreat leader, who is also a certified yoga teacher. Participants may also personalize this retreat by creating prayer practices around their own interests — photography, hiking, kayaking — in the abundant free time that will be scheduled into our weekend. Silence will be observed in the early morning and through breakfast to allow us to dive deep into this time apart. (For those who want deeper silence, there is the option to take all meals in silence or to choose silence in the evenings as well.) Retreat leader: Mary DeTurris Poust
