Exploring Healing, Mysticism and Creativity

April 26-28, 2019
Lutherock Conference and Retreat Center
Newland, NC
Sponsored by Lumunos


Join us as we explore the story of Hildegard of Bingen to frame our stories and to deepen connections with our mystical, contemplative, and creative sides. Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) had a zest for life. In addition to being a woman of prayer, she was a musician, artist, herbalist, and visionary leader in her community. We’ll consider how her timeless story touches ours as she calls us to our journey toward wholeness.

On this retreat, you can expect:
• Away time to disconnect from routines, connect with self, and renew in a beautiful setting
• Gentle yoga, meditation, and movement for all abilities
• The opportunity to explore what calls you—what brings purpose to your life
• Meaningful conversation with other women interested in healing, mysticism and creativity
• A chance to grow and deepen your spiritual life; and
• Lots of laughter

Registration Costs: $240 for a shared room and $290 for a single room (includes meals). Scholarships available.
