When external events compel us to look outward is precisely when we need to examine inwardly. Living in complex times requires creativity and a sense of grounding that is found in the spiritual. Join Margy Oehmig and Terry Price for a weekend of joy and discovery through labyrinth walking followed by reflection and writing. This will be a special time to retreat away from the noise and distraction of the world in order to refresh, reflect, and reemerge better equipped to creatively reconnect with the divinity within, the divinity around us, and the divinity in the world. Although no writing experience is necessary, creative writers will learn ways to incorporate the labyrinth as a creative tool in their practice. And everyone will learn new ways to incorporate the labyrinth as a creative tool for a creative life. 

The retreat will begin on Friday evening with a meet and greet, an orientation of the weekend, and an introduction to the labyrinth. Saturday will feature presentations, labyrinth walks, and journaling, but also quiet time and space to be able to just listen to that inner voice. Sunday morning will be a time of sharing and gathering ideas to take back to your own life to continue your journey.

This retreat will take place at St. Mary's Sewanee: The Ayres Center for Spiritual Development. For more information about St. Mary's Sewanee, please visit our website at
