Interfaith Leader Retreat


AN INTERFAITH LEADER RETREAT FOCUSED ON REST, REPLENISHMENT AND RENEWAL.

The retreat will include three separate coordinated rituals and three “talks” that outline the need for resting and replenishing. There will be time for dialogue in the sessions with one another, as well as interactive activities.

OUR FACILITATOR: REV. SUZANNE CASTLE

As a deeply creative spirit with sparkle in her soul, Suzanne Castle recognized early on the importance of art to capture our attention. The joy-filled ability to recreate the world and allow it to glimmer anew – the “sparkle factor” – is a necessary and too often neglected piece of our humanity and thriving. Suzanne’s desire is to call to life the creative spirit in herself and others, to invigorate and honor artists and creatives as they lend their essential vision to the way we see the world.

Her road, like that of most artists, has been neither straight nor narrow. Her own sparkle factor has had to sustain the complexities of loss, disappointment, reinvention, and time. Recapturing the glimmer in her soul has taken years of patient practicing, sometimes failing, sometimes stubbornly repeating the simplest truth – staying stuck is never the solution.

Suzanne returns again and again to the spark in a room full of dreamers. The possibility, the presence and crackle of that magical rewriting of what could be, is the zing that keeps her creative spirit alive. It is her joy to foster this space for others, through one-on-one coaching, group retreats and events, speaking engagements, and stargazing. Suzanne connects the constellations of her own winding story to draw us closer to the creative spirit shining within us all.
