Conversations with Grace

Seal Cove, Maine

August 19-22, 2019


We are excited to invite you to join us for our third summer retreat in the beautiful setting of the Alcyon Center in Seal Cove, Maine. In this unique environment we will explore Grace within ourselves, with others, and in Nature.

Edging the cove, the Alcyon Center invites us to explore the rhythms of the tides, walk the labyrinth, and open deeply to ourselves and the details of our environment. As we attend to the world around us, nature help us to know ourselves in new ways. It offers countless ways to feel grounded, steady, and inspired as we move forward in our lives.

This retreat will provide a relaxed, balanced schedule that includes opportunities to learn new skills and practice self care. Afternoons will be a chance to experience "cove time".

Your hosts are Presence in Healing teachers Sara Pierce and Faith Perkins.
