Spiritual Healing With Joy & Purpose

  • In-Person or Virtual Day-Long Retreat
     February 10, 2024
     10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Available in person and and via livestream. Join Erin Jean Warde on her return visit to Saint James and the Urban Well. This Saturday retreat will build on material presented in last year’s retreat and bring a fresh focus on recovery and healing accessed through prayer and rest. It will address issues we all face at times: feeling weighed down or discouraged, anxiety, despair, and even depression, which can lead to unhealthy habits and choices.

The day will explore attitudes and barriers to accessing joy, and the power of meditation, prayer and other contemplative practices in our own healing.

Erin will draw on insights from psychology, neuroscience, habit change research, as well as Brené Brown’s work. Erin is the author of Sober Spirituality: The Joy of a Mindful Relationship with Alcohol; is a certified facilitator for Brené Brown; and is an Episcopal priest.
