A door can represent a separation – or an invitation. This retreat we will explore the rich images of the door as an invitation to growth and awareness. Discover the many ways that doors are a potent symbol for spiritual growth.  You will discover that there is seemingly no end to the insights that the image of the door can yield and that opening the door of the heart reveals the vast treasure of who we are and how the sacred is present within us. This is a journey to the true self. Content and reflective activities will draw from Joyce Rupp’s Open the Door.  Morning presentations will include input, reflection, activities, and sharing.  Afternoons will provide personal time and optional activities.  Body treatments need to be scheduled in advance by calling the Port office.
