  • Winter Mini-Retreat

  • Saturday, February 06, 2021 at 12:00 PM
    Zoom

    As we discern our way forward this year, MMC is excited to host a Winter Mini-Retreat where participants can bring their curiosity and creativity to a time of community-led conversation and resourcing. We'll gather at Noon EST on Saturday, February 6 to set our intentions for the day. Then, you're invited to bring your burning questions and interests to shape (2) one-hour afternoon sessions of singing and sharing (at 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. EST). Small groups will briefly report out as we conclude the day at 5:30 p.m. EST, celebrating all we have shared together. In the break between the afternoon sessions, we'll offer several restorative, self-care practices you can enjoy away from your screen.

    The retreat will draw on experiences of Open Space technology from recent online retreats. The Open Space process is a self-organizing practice that releases the inherent creativity and leadership in people. Inviting us to take responsibility for what we care about, Open Space establishes a marketplace of inquiry, reflection and learning, helping to bring out the best in both individuals and the whole. Here is a brief introduction.

    Registration for the retreat is on a sliding scale, from $75 to $50 USD. Consider how many sessions you plan to participate in, then pay what is generous and affordable. Registration is limited to 40 people, so fill out this Google registration form to let us know you're planning to attend.

    Scholarships are available. Please contact Charlotte Moroz or call (929) 266-4662 for more information or if you have any questions.
