Hi! I’m Lisa Marion from dailyPAX. I’m a Spiritual Director and Retreat Leader in Southern California. I have a special opportunity for you this April!
I want to invite you to a retreat that I’m going to be leading on Spiritual Gifts. The retreat will be held Saturday, April 9th at 9:30 am, and we will conclude at 3:30 pm. It’s going to be held at St. Andrew’s Abbey in Valyermo, which is in the upper dessert in Southern California.
It’s going to be a beautiful day! I was there recently, and all of the trees and the bulbs are beginning to bloom and poke through winter. It’ll be gorgeous up there.
This retreat will be more of a discussion than a retreat. A lot of my retreats involve a lot of silence, reflection, and solitude, but this one is not going to be like that. It’s going to be a workshop. I have a lot of tools that I want to share with you, so you can discern what your gifts are. We’ll talk about the differences between spiritual gifts, and the fruit of the spirit, and how temperament and personality all come into play to make you who you are.
I think that we spend a lot of our time these days comparing ourselves to other people. We can’t help it; it’s part of our nature—part of our culture. We look at other people and say, “I wish I was like that” or, “I wish I had that gift” and what we do, then, is we minimize the true gifts that we already have inside of us.
With this retreat I hope to bring that out, and to help you see how you were created, what gifts you were given, and what it is you’re supposed to do with yourself. And, stop comparing yourself to other people and become the best person that you can be based on your gifts and your temperament!
Again, Saturday, April 9th from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm at Valyermo. If you look below, there will be a link to register. I hope you’ll join us!
Keep seeking peace; it’s there to be found.
