|Ancients called this period the “dog days of summer,” those lazy, hazy, crazy hot days when you break out in a sweat with any exertion. If you haven’t registered for this year’s North Carolina 5-day Academy for Spiritual Formation retreat September 28-October 3rd there’s no need to sweat getting a great room at dog days discounts.
Only 16 rooms left
Our community is diverse and ecumenical, with registrations from England, Canada, Malaysia and from Michigan, Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Washington, Alabama and, of course, North Carolina. It includes Methodists, Episcopalians, Presbyterians and Lutherans.
This year’s faculty promises to inform and form you. Jerry Haas was director of the Upper Room Academy for Spiritual Formation for 11 years. He and Trevor Hudson co-authored the book, The Cycle of Grace and Jerry will deliver five lectures on Wholeness and Holiness: Establishing a Rhythm of Love. His lectures will focus on relationships with family, friends and God as love is found, flowers, is tried/torn and reborn.
Dawn Mills is a Benedictine Sister in a contemplative monastic community. This wonderful, delightful servant wrote The Gospel According to Dawn: A Woman’s Work of Spiritual Imagination and will employ the study and practice of prayer and spiritual disciplines as she explores what we really need, falling in love with God, allowing God to love us, how love changes things and staying in love.
Here’s the really good news! If you register before August 8th you can still take advantage of the Early Bird Discounts and save up to $25. Double occupancy rooms are just $615 and there are 7 singles rooms available at $725. That’s room, board and spiritual formation for less than the cost of a motel room at the beach for a week. But you must register now, while rooms are available, to take advantage of the discounts.
We accept Visa and Mastercard registrations online and you can also download a brochure and mail in your registration. If you have any questions related to your registration please contact Robin Harry toll-free at 800-849-4433.
Come soak up the sun and the Son at the NC 5-day Academy. We look forward to welcoming you into this warm community.
Blessings from the North Carolina Academy Team,
