Hi all, I saw the events at St Barnabas on 1/31 and 2/1 and thought they might be interesting. Is anyone from Retreat House planning to attend?
House of Joy launch tomorrow from 3 to 6. A sneak preview of Tarik's poem, a first time House of poet. . . .

Together

By Tarik Ahmed

The church bells awaken me
The muezzin's call to prayer excites me
The monk's meditation calms me
The rabbi's intellect enriches me

Whatever path the sincere heart chooses
Will lead to truth
So drop that sword
Forsake foul words
Forgive past transgressions
Move towards your brother

And
Embrace each other
With love and hope
20 stories. . . .Elaine Johnson writes about the writer's group

My experiences with Retreat House Writer’s Gathering have never failed to offer a level of acceptance I have seldom encountered in my day-to-day comings and goings. Novice writer that I was, I felt the ease of this wholesome and simple atmosphere where there are no lines drawn between the accomplished and the novice writer. The only unstated qualification for fitting in was absolute authenticity.

I wrote my first submission, entitled “For the Love of Hope.” That humble beginning meant more than I realized at the time. I soon discovered that the working and re-working of my life stories offered a distancing from childhood wounds and more than a bit of soul-healing.

My most meaningful writer gathering happened very recently when. I missed an email that the group had been rescheduled. Two women from my group and one of the Retreat House staff members took the time to meet with me and listened to me read the poem I had named “Four Preacher Boys." When I made the remark that I was not a “real” writer,” they said, “Elaine, if you write you are a real writer!” They offered soul-connecting responses that made me believe they meant what they said. All week I kept telling myself, “I have found my gift! It’s not huge or showy. But I believe it is what I was created to do. I am a writer!”

That bit of confidence caused me to give a copy of my first ever published poem to my pastor. He was Preacher Boy Four. I placed his copy in a huge basket full of lots of handwritten note cards as part of his retirement celebration. I had been shy around him, as I am with many people I admire. But now we talk whenever I bump into him and his wife. The "Four Preacher Boys” poem was published in the latest Retreat House book, House of Compassion.

Thought this might be of interest to those who attended the Elephant in the Living Room discussion on Racism
I am very interested in your community but am unable to attend the June 11th event will there be another in June?
This is a wonderfully spiritual and hospitable place of peace!

Freedom to Explore: Finding Common Ground — Retreat House 07/15/2021

Freedom to Explore: Finding Common Ground — Retreat House

As an interfaith community, Retreat House encourages sharing our faith and embracing the foundation of compassion that connects us.

This core value of cross-pollination is a natural extension of the spaces we are cultivating in our spiritual lives. This is the idea of taking the metaphorical DNA from one system, sector, institution, or paradigm and seeing what happens when we mix it with the DNA from a different system, sector, institution, or paradigm.

Think about the hope, new growth and possible FREEDOM that might emerge when we are open to discovery in cross-pollination.

Do you incorporate practices or traditions from faith communities other than your own into your life? What about ideas or beliefs of others? Does this grow you? How does it feel in your body?
