contemplation ahead…

TheMoses & I are planning a retreat…

For the last year or so, we’ve been talking about going to a place together where we can disconnect from the regular & get away for some contemplation… (in the vein of the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality book by Scazzero.

After lots of searching, I found a place that is relatively clost to where we are, Vina, California. In early April, we’re off to New Clairveaux for about 3 days. It’s a Trappist monastery that allows individuals & small groups (up to 3 at a time) to come to their site for rest, personal enrichment, silence, etc.

A bonus is that the monks support themselves by making vino – you can find out more about that HERE.

I’m not sure what to expect, other than some quiet personal reflective time, & also some bonding time with TheMoses.

  6. You know, I was going to make a joke about the city name being Vina, Cali but there’s not joke here. This is a serious monastary with some serious vino in Vina Cali.
