THRESHOLD RETREAT

Everything is up in the air.

It was not a wild year, but a feral year, as mythologist Martin Shaw reminds us.

Last year was untamable, unpredictable, and unnerving.

We continue to experience more than just change, which is situational. Instead, we find ourselves in a massive transition, which is deeper, from the inside. We are in a tectonic shift. As we bear witness to this global transformation, we are each passing through our own personal transition.

Everything is worthy of examination. It’s an invitation to the great re-thinking. 

Join us for an 8-week guided retreat experience from wherever you currently call home.

“Change is avalanching upon our heads and most people are grotesquely unprepared for it.” — Alvin Toffler, Future Shock (published in 1970)

Selah. Stop, listen and make sense of your transition. During Threshold | 2020 we will examine these phases of transition through reflections and creative exercises.

Recognition

Transitions often start with weak signals shimmering at the edges of your life. Many of us are not tuned to take note. How do we recognize and discern the signals?

Reckoning

The discomfort grows until it’s distracting. Transition is more than change. Change is reflected in external circumstances, but transition is the inner work.

Reorder

How can we use meaningful and relevant rites and rituals during the middle, or liminal, space? Learn how to make meaning of this passage.

Return

How will you find yourself coming back in new ways to old activities?

"What we perceive to be in the way is the way."
