CASC/ACSS Member Rev. Dr. Anne Simmonds will be presenting again with Canadian singing legend Ann Mortifee. Together, they will co-lead “Waiting for Wisdom: a Pre-advent Retreat,” November 18 – 19, 2019, at Emmanuel College, Toronto.
Is it possible to experience awe, mystery and wonder as we work to juggle all the demands of relationships, time, body and pocketbook? This retreat is for women, lay and clergy, to come together and mine an old familiar story. We will invite the mysterious and universal themes to transport us to the womb of our own deepest self. As did Mary and Elizabeth, we will trust the Great Mystery, which longs to bring new life into the world through each of our own unique and imperfectly-perfect selves. We will travel together, women supporting women, through story, song, conversation, movement and ritual, into the richness inherent in this seasonal story.
