2024 Nourish Retreat

2024 Nourish Retreat

Join Us for Nourish Retreat

goodness and rest

A space for cultivating rest, deepening awareness and collective wellbeing 

NOURISH retreat is an invitation to intentionally slow down, exhale and make connections with others who co-labor in the ongoing work of racial injustice and peacemaking. 

In response to personal, familial and collective traumas, we felt compelled to dismantle oppressive systems at the root. But when the fight for justice is personal, the labor to heal and transform systems and communities can take its toll. 

Come take a sacred pause for rest, reflection, communion with God, and renewing our energy and commitment to peaceably disrupt injustices and affect change. Designed to nurture holistically, this retreat provides dedicated space for contemplative spiritual practices, community interactions, embodied grounding exercises and a relaxed schedule to cultivate deep rest. You’ll likely meet a few (good) troublemakers along the way too!

You are called to good work in the world and our hope is that NOURISH Retreat gives you what you need to keep doing it.
