Greater Northwest 5 Day Academy for Spiritual Formation

April 29, 2018 - May 4, 2018

“Contemplative prayer is like striking a tuning fork. All you can really do in the spiritual life is resonate to the true pitch, to receive the always-present message.” – Richard Rohr

Join us as Dr Sharon Daloz Parks and Rev Dr Cynthia Wilson help us to respond to a world full of fear, anxiety, and incivility by learning to resonate with God and others.
