Date: Saturday October 21st, 2017 ∴  Time: 9:00am - 3:00pm 

ChI is launching a process which will look deeply at the ways our organization is moving from unconscious biases, engaging in cultural misappropriation, and additionally, explore how our organizational culture is inclusive and exclusive.  This retreat is designed to help us uncover some of the questions we need to ask ourselves as an organization. We're inviting people who want to help create substaintial change to ChI's ability to address inequity, and move toward becoming a stronger voice for justice and equality in the world.

 

This retreat will be the first in a series of events during this 18 month process. So, if you have anyone who would like to become involved, or simply couldn't make this date, please let them know there will be future opportunites.

NEW INTENSIVE February 2018

Emerging Communities of Spirit: The Spiritual but Not Religious

The number of adults in the US who say they are spiritual, but not religious, has grown rapidly in recent years, up to 27% in 2017.*

 

Who are the people who make up this group? Why are their numbers growing? What does their spirituality look like? What are their particular challenges, gifts or strengths? What is the nature of the spiritual care needed for those that identify as SBNR?

 

Bringing our knowledge and experience together for two full days, we seek to deepen our understanding of those with this spiritual identity. We will explore different forms of ministry that may serve the SBNR and we will consider where SBNR interfaces with social justice, science, and the personal growth movement. Collectively, we will look at where SBNR community is found, or emerging, and envision ways to nurture this part of our communal spiritual landscape.

NEW INTENSIVE  February 2018

Science and Spirit: A Journey through Inquiry, the Cosmos and our Belonging to the Universe

This intensive will focus on science itself as a source for wonder, contemplation and transformative meaning. Challenging the stereotypes that paint spirituality and science as incompatible, we will travel between first-person experiences, depictions of the Cosmos, and key developing areas of science.
