A day for discernment, facilitated by Still Harbor's Director of Spiritual Formation, Colleen Sharka, that will deepen your sense of call and your alignment to it in the new year.

What does 2015 hold for me?  What can I do to make it an even better year in body, mind, and spirit?

These are often the kinds of questions we ask ourselves each year starting on January 1st. While they are key questions, are they the right or best ones to be asking?

Perhaps the more important questions to begin with are:

  • Why am I here and who am I right now, today?
  • How can I authentically live my life in a balanced way, while also serving others?

This day of discernment will help you (re)connect with your sense of purpose, mission, and drive in your life and work. Through individual reflection, materials and videos, and group sharing, you will have the opportunity to ponder three key questions:

    •    Who am I and why am I here?
    •    What is my purpose?
    •    How do I live out my purpose?


We offer this day free of charge, and encourage you to make a donation:

  • Help cover our material and food costs with a donation of $50.
  • Help us cover all of our costs with a donation of $100.
  • Cover the cost of the retreat and another participant with a donation of $150.
