“Or maybe it’s about the wonderful things that may happen if you break the ropes that are holding you.”
 —Mary Oliver 

 Join us for a quiet day in the Texas Hill Country at the beautiful Red Corral Ranch as we focus on readings from Mary Oliver’s recently published book of selected essays, Upstream. Our day will include looking deeply at readings of both poetry and prose by Oliver as well as discussion, journal writing and contemplative prayer. There will be time for walking in nature , reading, and writing all in the sacred container of silence. This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the silence of the sacred—a time when silence is not awkward but rather a welcoming invitation to plunge into the mystery of the Holy.

 Jun 8 (Th) 9am-4pm 
 Location: Red Corral Ranch, 505 Red Corral Ranch Rd., Wimberley, TX 78676
 $125 (Includes lunch and snacks. Pre-registration required. Refunds not available for retreats and off-site programs)
