The truth of our lives reminds us daily that we are often standing on the threshold of a new beginning: in life, in work, and in relationships.  These thresholds can be powerful and altering experiences which lead us to new territory.

The invitations of a new beginning can open our heart and mind to something beyond our initial understanding, it can also mean leaving something of significance behind.

This retreat, set in the Winter season that prepares us for the transition to the new growth of Spring, is designed to provide opportunities to explore again the impactful influences at the core of what calls each of us to meaningful life & work.  This retreat is designed to help participants reconnect Role & Soul.
