Christ Walk Retreat at ShrineMont


Here is a GREAT opportunity:  Come away with me for a weekend of health, fitness, spirituality and wellness.  I'll be conducting a Christ Walk Retreat at the Shrine Mont conference center "on the mountain" in Northern Virgina from 6-8 May.  I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE for you all to come meet me, so I can meet you, and share a weekend focused on deepening our faith and spirituality.

Here is a blurb on the weekend:
Christ Walk - a 40-day program about Christian living: mind,
body and spirit. Many Christians struggle with health and illness.
Many Christians deeply want to connect their spiritual beliefs to their
whole life, but need assistance. There is a mind, body and spiritual
connection to health. When we do not approach our health
holistically and God-centered, then no medicine in the world will get
us well. Christ Walk is a holistic program based on Christian teachings
that outlines a path for Christian Formation to incorporate mind, body
and spiritual activities into practice. This retreat will be lead by the
author, Anna Fitch Courie, and will incorporate mind, body and
spiritual practices into discussion, group activities, yoga, walking and
meditation. This retreat is all about incorporating your spirit into your
daily practice! Come spend three days focused on your health. Wear
comfortable clothes, come prepared to enjoy the beauty of the
mountain, and nourish your mind, body and soul. A copy of the
"Christ Walk: 40 Day Spiritual Fitness Program" is included in the cost
of the retreat weekend. Join us on this journey as we build healthy
Christians: body, mind AND soul. #christwalk

Rev. Pam Webb will be our chaplain for the weekend; we'll have a certified yoga instructor, and we'll divide into walking groups to enjoy the beauty of the mountain.  Of course, as with any Christ Walk event, we'll have facilitated sessions on different aspects of health and spirituality.  I've included the DRAFT agenda here for you to take a SNEAK PEAK at all we plan to offer.
