• Convening
  • Spiritual Formation

Leaders from retreat centers across North America gather to build relationships and identify areas of future collaboration to strengthen a retreat center network.

Participants in this three-year project include staff from Kirkridge, Commonweal, GilChrist, and Fetzer retreat centers, with additional participants expected as a network develops. The goal is to create a network of retreat centers committed to connecting inner work with outer action and to working together on strategies for financial sustainability and for supporting the movement for individual and collective spiritual transformation. Fetzer staff Michelle Sheidt and GilChrist head caretaker Kirstin Vander Giessen-Reitsma are participating.
