Re-Member Us! A Geez Magazine Retreat

Facilitators: Lynice Pinkard and Nichola Torbett
Dates: Friday, May 5 at 4 pm to Sunday, May 7 at 1 pm
Location: Kirkridge Retreat and Study Center, 2495 Fox Gap Rd, Bangor, PA 18013
Cost: $350 for an individual or $600 family rate. The cost includes the programming, overnight accommodations, and meals.

In this retreat based on our article in Geez 68, we will explore the eucharist as a radical ritual to release our vital energies for love, activism, and solidarity. You do not need to be a card-carrying Christian to participate! At its best, communion is a ritual working-through of denial, guilt, shame, trauma, and mourning, with recourse to a power greater than ourselves, that can move us from victimhood to full humanity, a fundamental rupture and rebirth. Come join the conspiracy of the broken. Leave with tools for welcoming others. Let’s re-member each other. Register here.
