Climate Healing Retreat at First Unitarian

Planet Earth in the shape of a broken heart

Each one of us is a cell of our amazing Earth. As we connect with ourselves and
each other and take care, we support the healing our earth, all beings, climate. During this weekend retreat, we will be doing some simple self-care practices and exploring what the four stages of the Work That Reconnects Spiral: Gratitude, Honoring our Pain for the World, Seeing with Fresh (and ancient) Eyes, and Going Forth mean for each one of us.


Friday, May 5th, 7–8.30 pm
Saturday, May 6th, 9am–2 pm
Sunday, May 7th, 4–6 pm


Suggested donation of $35 – 50 for the weekend, but please pay what you can.
