our retreats

Retreat, reflect, restore…but in relaxed ambiance and conversation with a small group of others at the newly created Spent Dandelion Monthly Retreats!

Over a spread of three days and two nights, we will savor good conversation, delicious cuisine, and wide and varied North Shore offerings.

Each retreat, while different in teachings, is uniform in cost and cancellation policy and follows the same general schedule.

Hygge Hospitality: The Art of Welcome in an Age of Rancor

February 10, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - February 12, 2019 @ 11:00 am CST

$125 – $225

Whatever else a person can say about this day and age, it isn’t an era of gentleness of spirit.

So during these gathered days, it seems appropriate to explore and deepen habits of hospitality, in joyful defiance of general societal crankiness.

We’ll discover ways to welcome, reasons why people crave welcome, whether there are suspect motivatons to welcome, how to welcome with one’s own style and context, and, given the Scriptural call to welcome even the stranger and the enemy, whether there are ever limits to welcoming, and what to do when an enemy (or just someone you plain old don’t like) shows up at your door.

For inspiration, retreaters are encouraged to travel up to Grand Marais for the annual Hygge Festival.  Details below!
