Come for a week… or two or three. Let this be the summer you give yourself these things: gift of time solace of silence lasting connection of spiritual friends peace of resting in the Divine Heart feast of creativity attuning to the slow heartbeat of creation. Based upon the 2018 book by Rev. Anita Amstutz, Soul Tending: Journey into the Heart of Sabbath (Skylight Paths Publishing, Barnes and Noble/Indy/Amazon), you will explore solo and with other retreatants, themes of Sabbath, simplicity, the practice of creativity and prayer, hospitality, play, healing of nature and reimagining work.
Soul Tenders will be based at retreat house Casa del Sol which inspires the imagination and calls forth a deep solace just by the sheer magnificence of the soaring painted cliffs and intimate riparian canyons around it. You will find yourself revived and restored in community with human and non-human alike.
Like the good beekeeper that she is, Anita will be doing cross-fertilization with other summer programming such as Ghost Ranch Chorale, Prophetic Action: A Journey of Love, Order of the Sacred Earth, Interplay, Gospel Choir, as well as inviting special guests to create a rich menu of possibilities for your time away.
For those staying multiple weeks, your bridge night (Saturday night) is included.
