  • by

April 6, 13, 20, 27, 2022 | Wednesday evenings, 7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m. CDT

Facilitated by Debbie Carmody and Mary Kay Whitacre
Cost: $40

Beginning from a place of wonder and gratitude, we will explore herbs as our allies, as supports on the spiritual journey, and as gifts of a generous Creator. Savoring the beauty and power of herbs, you will be invited to work with them in a number of creative ways. We will call forth the spirit of St. Hildegard and all the monastics throughout the ages who have kept alive the wisdom of this sacred herbal medicine, which heals both body and soul. This will be one more opportunity to fall in love with creation and gain new inspiration. Our time together will include input, prayer, faith sharing, and creative processing.

Please register by April 1. 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. We look forward to welcoming you online.
