Camino de Santiago Retreat
Saturday, January 21, 2017 from 10:00 to 11:30 am
Location: East Long Beach
This is an opportunity to discern if walking the Camino with Rooted Soul would be a good fit for you. During our time we will give you a sense of what you can expect on your pilgrimage and share with you the philosophy behind how we structure our retreat. Rooted Soul's posture is born out of a belief that the Camino is not a journey to manage or master, but a current to enter. Allowing yourself to be led along by this flow enables the Spirit of God to move in powerful and unexpected ways. Some of the most impactful experiences you will have will be born in unexpected circumstances and the serendipitous introduction of other pilgrims.
Because of this reality, we do not plan out every detail of your pilgrimage. Instead, we provide you with the preparation necessary for you to travel lightly and expectantly, as you walk your own Camino. We also create space at regular intervals along the way for you to be attentive to what God may be speaking, and how your heart is responding.
If you decide to become part of our cohort you will be encouraged to stretch beyond our group and embrace others you will meet along the way, trusting God may desire to use people from other backgrounds and perspectives to grow your understanding of Him and yourself. We will be a companion on your journey, but we will leave the room necessary for it to be your own pilgrimage.
If you would like find out more, please be sure to RSVP for this informational meeting. If nothing else, you will be able to meet others, whose hearts have been stirred by the thought of going on pilgrimage and encourage one another as you follow that longing.
