They say that G!d made human beings because G!d loves stories. Elie Wiesel
Please describe a day at the first week retreat
After breakfast we begin our day with 15-20 minutes of deeply ecumenical, non-denominational prayer. Participants are welcome to lead. We then immerse ourselves in learning stories and refining storytelling skills. Lunch is followed by sacred time - time for you to walk the labyrinth, journal, do homework, or take a nap. Late afternoon offers more learning, followed by dinner and a lovely evening surprise.
I would like to have a double room in order to save money but do not know any of the other participants.
We will be happy to match you with a participant of the same gender if there is one available.
I have food allergies. Will I be able to eat at the Franciscan Center?
Please advise us of any allergies and we will pass on the information. Meals will consist of multiple vegetarian options with a fish option at some meals. If you require gluten-free or alternative milk products, please let us know.
Can I pay by credit card? Yes...
...through PayPal (you will need your own PapPal account for this option) But if you pay by check, you win a big place in our hearts :>)
What is included in the full year of mentorship? (Separate fee) • 4 online classes with your cohort (using a Zoom classroom) of 1 1/2- 2 hours with staff and guest teachers. • 6 one hour individual meetings online with your mentor to work on the story project that you choose for the year. • Students must be at the retreat in order to sign up for the full year.
Every day will be filled with learning and laughter, story and silence, personal and communal growth, music and magic.
