Welcome Reflect Refresh Wonder Renew Recharge Listen Rest

What if you could give yourself the gift of a few hours to simply stop, refresh yourself and nourish your spirit?

What could that give you?

Whether you have an hour, a day or want an ongoing experience, our online and in-person retreats offer protected time and space to rest, recharge and reflect on what’s most meaningful to you.


Sunday, March 3, 2024
10:30 am – 11:45 am EST

75 minutes to step back from routines and duties to renew and restore your spirit.

It’s the thread that draws us into relationship.

And the glue that holds community together.

It just may be the medicine for healing the planet.




It affords mutual benefit.

It requires mutual responsibility.

In this 75 minute, online retreat we will contemplate

How do we receive and return the gifts life offers us?

What could it mean to live in reciprocity with the each other, with the living world?

“To name the world as gift is to feel one’s membership in the web of reciprocity. It makes you happy—and it makes you accountable.”

~ Robin Wall Kimmerer, The Serviceberry: An economy of abundance.


Transition & Change
A Spring Circle
Saturday, April 13
9:30 –11:30 am EDT


It marks the transition from the cold, dormant winter months to the warmer, more active season ahead. It also offers us the opportunity and inspiration to reflect on the transitions and changes happening in our lives. It is the perfect time to be discerning your choices and renewing your spirit so that you can keep showing up for the communities and causes you care for.

Join us for this in-person session where we’ll still the noise inside and out and make space for contemplation and gentle conversations.

We’ll offer images and texts to spark reflection and open fresh perspective. It will be time to focus on what matters most to you and to discern how you may navigate the transitions on your path with resilience and integrity.

The Centre for Social Innovation – Annex is an accessible and welcoming venue, easily reached by public transit.
