Join us for a journey of exploration and connection to the earth. Char has created this retreat based on chapters from “Earth, Our Original Monastery” by Christine Valters Paintner. Our day will involve being immersed in nature, rain or shine, as we engage in meditation, contemplative walks and walking a labyrinth. We will work with many of the elements the earth has provided, including herbs, essential oils, stones, plants and trees.

Char Peterson is a lifelong learner of a variety of healing modalities that recognize, focus and encourage the recovery of our sense of the Sacred in all creation. She has practiced her soul care work most recently as a hospice chaplain at Gundersen Health System. She has a master’s degree in theology and a master’s level Certificate of Pastoral Ministry from St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Please bring: journal, favorite art supplies, hat, walking shoes, small tote or backpack, long pants, insect spray, water bottle (refilling of water will be available) and something to sit on if you’d like.
