Self-Care Weekend on Howe Island

Iole Bada, Toronto Associate

Last weekend, Ottawa Associates, Bill and Jacqueline, lead us through a journey of discerning, learning and spiritual growth. The pace was excellent, with a well-coordinated team effort alternating from the imaginative art work with Jacquie where we could release the imagination through art and the gentle physical movements where “less is more” with Bill to reawaken an awareness of the nervous system and the possible regenerative neurons work that goes on in the body.

The retreat deepened our insights into our psyche and body. As Bill mentioned, our morning responsorial psalm during Mass – “I praise you Lord for I am wonderfully made” – confirmed our experiences. The music was thoughtfully woven into this tapestry of art and physical movements where we could savour moments of awe, inspiration and reflection. The location was perfect for the connection with Marguerite Bourgeoys and the joyful presence of the sisters re-enforced our bonds, and our purpose. Indeed, thank you, thank you for a formative and informative experience that will keep us ON FIRE as we go forward.
