The Practice of Finding: How Gratitude leads the Way to Enough

(An Eastertide retreat)

Seeking is in vogue these days. Many of us are continually striving and seeking — for one thing or another.

This retreat presents the spiritual practice of finding as the antidote to chronic seeking, the awareness of having received enough. Based on Holly Whitcomb's latest book, "The Practice of Finding," this retreat is a guide to that surprising journey of discovery—which along the way—can help you to discern the gifts of both joy and vulnerability. Ponder these three words, FINDING, GRATITUDE, ENOUGH. You will marvel at what you have already found and what your readily possess. (The deadline for registering is April 27.)

Our leader: Rev. Holly Whitcomb, Director of Kettlewood Retreats, is a widely traveled speaker and spiritual director. She is the author of five books including "Practicing Your Path," "Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting," and now, "The Practice of Finding".
