What does it mean to be called and to follow that urging?


What are the obstacles that keep us from living into our full vocation?


What do we need to remember, to change, to let go?


Join Rev. Leslie Mott for a weekend of finding and reclaiming the inner voice of wisdom and joy! There will be opportunities for group teaching and discussion, as well as time for reflection and rest, including a gentle yoga practice and guided meditation.



Welcome to the Women’s retreat at Holmes!  This weekend is about rekindling the skills and practices that allow us to listen to our inner Wisdom.  We’ll share stories and context, and look at the lives of some well-known women who have followed their vocation through obstacles, detours and the vagaries of life.  In doing so, we’ll look at our own obstacles and detours, remembering that we, too, are called to share our gifts and graces.

Bring a journal and a yoga mat, if you have them!
