Love, Me and Love Me. Loving Another and Loving Self

February 15, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - February 17, 2019 @ 11:00 am CST

$125 – $225

Even if you are a romantic it can be quite difficult to figure out how to balance love for another and love for self.

Sometimes, even in more or less healthy relationships, it can be difficult to understand where the lines between Other and Self are even drawn.

If a break-up does occur, a person is sometimes left wondering what, if anything, can be healthily salvaged of the relationship in any sort of continual way to honor both the love that once was and the new single self—whoever that is, now.

And if you are single (or know one!) in this couple-oriented culture, it’s a challenge to nurture and affirm not just yourself, but your singleness.

In this retreat, we will think on, challenge, be surprised by, and reinterpret ways that the Christian tradition has taught about the love of another, love of self, and even new and surprising models of relationships.

While we’re at it, enjoy offerings of candlelight snow-shoeing and Winter Festivals, and BYOBeer in honor of the day of recognition of Martin Luther, and of his beloved Katie, who made beer like no other.
