About the Retreat
The Union of Psychology and Spirituality Retreat is offered for psychologists, pastoral counselors, other mental health professionals, clergy and all individuals who share an interest in the overlapping realms of psychology and spirituality. The intent is to bring together people who will speak openly about their beliefs and practices and will actively participate in their own learning and growth. The programming is designed for participants at all levels of knowledge and psychological and spiritual development. No particular religious tradition is endorsed by the program and during past retreats, leaders have presented from Buddhist, Hindu, Christian and non-religious spiritual traditions. Three concurrent programs will be offered on Friday afternoon from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon, ending at 4 p.m. A movement workshop will be Friday night before dinner, followed by a special fireside chat. All the retreat programs emphasize active discussion and participation rather than lecture only. There will be time set aside for meditation throughout the event. Attendees are strongly encouraged to stay overnight to fully benefit from the experience. There will be ample opportunities for social interaction and meditation.
Participants will leave with the following: 1) A better understanding of how the science of psychology and the forms of spiritual experience inform and complement one another; 2) Having learned and practiced exercises and activities which are designed to contribute to personal and spiritual growth; and, 3) An expanded perspective on who we are and what we have in common.
