Deepening Gratitude: Appreciating
the Divine Presence within All Things
A 7-Day Online Retreat with
Spiritual Director Colette Lafia

November 4-10, 2019
Seven daily offerings
Registration CLOSED

Registration for this free online retreat is now closed.

This 7-day online retreat will invite you into a contemplative experience of gratitude. We will engage in practices such as connecting more consciously with our breath, seeing with eyes of gratitude, and walking in our daily life more mindfully.

Gratefulness is not something we need to “add” on to our lives, but is rather an inherent quality we already possess. In this online retreat, you’ll learn to bring awareness to the gratitude that dwells at the core of your being, so that you can experience its transformative power more deeply and consistently.

Join in community for practices, prayers and reflections on deepening gratitude, savoring Divine Presence, and connecting with your thankful heart.
