Dreams: Our Own Personal Parables (on-site)

April 11-12 | Tuesday, 3:00 p.m.-Wednesday, 3:00 p.m., CDT

facilitated by Bernadette Graves
Cost: $175 (includes private room, meals, and 2 follow-up Zoom sessions)
Registration limited to 10

Jesus often spoke and taught in parables—stories filled with metaphor, symbolism, and hidden messages that turned usual circumstances upside down. Our dreams at night are very similar. God, the Dream-Maker, sends us mysterious stories to help us grow in holiness and wholeness. In this retreat we will explore some basic dream theory and ways to work with your dreams. You are invited to submit a written dream to process with the group. Two optional group follow-up sessions via Zoom, scheduled for April 18 and 25, are included in your registration. These bonus sessions will allow further time for discussion and processing of our dreams.

Please register by April 3. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available; if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at We strongly encourage you to add to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat.
