Sabbatical in Everyday Life at Prairiewoods
- 6:30 - 7 p.m.
- All Ages
We all need dedicated breaks to rest and rekindle our energy and sense of direction. According to the testimony of those who have done it and the Harvard Business Review, sabbaticals can be transformative. Sabbaticals offer time to heal, reconnect with important relationships, explore and ultimately embrace a more authentic life. But not everyone can take extended leave from their everyday lives. When you participate in Sabbatical in Everyday Life at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha), you will have the opportunity to integrate rest and renewal into your life and enhance your wellbeing and resilience. Participants will enjoy two overnight retreats at Prairiewoods, one at the beginning of the program (Friday, Sept. 29, 6:30 p.m.–Saturday, Sept. 30, 4 p.m.) and one at the end (Friday, May 17, 6:30 p.m.–Saturday, May 18, 4 p.m.). In between, step away for six sabbatical days (Oct. 27, Dec. 1, Jan. 26, Feb. 23, March 22 and April 26 from 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.), designed to renew your energy, enhance your perspective and provide opportunities to learn practices that will help you build a life you don’t need to escape from. Each sabbatical day will include the chance to learn new skills, spend time in quiet reflection (indoors and out) and receive two individual services such as massage or spiritual direction. Join the cohort that begins in September! The cost of this nine-month sabbatical is $1,500 (with a deposit of $250). Register by Sept. 1 for a 30% discount!
