Our annual reatreat is coming up quite quickly. Here are a few details--more will be coming. If you want to contact AREO to register or ask questions, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll pass it along.
Our annual Winter Retreat is a wonderful time for reflection and renewal. This tradition allows us space to know ourselves and our F/friends better. Throughout the weekend there will be time for deep listening, for speaking, and for sharing with each other. We will have time to consider where we are—navigating from here to there—and imagining a Spirit-filled future. Possibilities include resting in a quiet space as well as role-playing, creating art, reading and journalling. Media include live guitar music and short video.
