We know the Spirit to be very alive in and through those living with HIV/AIDS, so this weekend is for you to be in touch with that Spirit. Time together will include presentations, reflection, sharing the fruit of quiet, ritual, massage, and discovery of ways to remain open to the Spirit. (When registering please choose an option of Resident or Commuter. Resident means you will be staying overnight and need a bed and commuter means you will not be staying overnight and will not need a bed. )

Please do NOT register for this or any 2019-2020 Program until May 1, 2019 which is when registration begins.
