Open to the new year’s unfolding with a retreat that honors your heart, mind, and soul. This retreat includes mindfulness meditation, small and large group discussion, and periods of rest and renewal designed to open your heart, build resilience, and foster compassionate action with clarity of purpose. Restore your spirit and enter the new year with greater calm, clarity, energy, resilience – and ways to sustain yourself in the coming year.

This virtual retreat will culminate on New Year’s Eve with Pendle Hill’s virtual Stellar New Year’s Eve Concert from 8:00pm-10:00pm Eastern Time, followed by our Candlelight Meeting for Worship with Care for the New Year from 11:00pm to Midnight Eastern Time, both via Zoom.

What People Are Saying:

“This is the sixth time I’ve attended this retreat and it is always new… This is a period of genuine and personal reflection and renewal – a great way to start the new year.”

“Valerie guided us through her own personal sharing, small group sharing, and one on one helping us to find our core, take risks, and to listen to the quiet voice within.”

“A space to heal, be held, and just rest!”

“Excellent alternative to the holiday hoopla.”
