Faithwalking 101 Retreat

to Apr 6

Faithwalking 101 Retreat

The next Faithwalking retreat is in April! Faithwalking is a curriculum that helps you attend to your emotional world and learn to pay attention to where you are operating out of wounding. It gives you a language and a path for cultivating emotional language. Currently the Delaware City Vineyard is helping our Region walk through the Faithwalking process. It begins with a retreat called Faithwalking 101. The cost is $125. It is an all day Friday and Saturday event at the Delaware City Vineyard. The next Faithwalking 101 retreat will be April 5-6. As we each attend to our emotional worlds, our ability to be present to God, ourselves and others will increase. This will bless the Abbey. This will bless you. Are you interested? The details are below. A few of us @carriemitchell97 @Aisha Peterson @bethfancher have gone through the 101 retreat and the 201 course that follows. Ask us about our experience! All of us would say that it has transformed our ability to pay attention to our inner world. (edited)
