Sacred Storytelling An Interfaith Retreat

For everyone.

Every facet of your inner being, outer expression, and worldview is deeply rooted in your life story. The Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions share a rich heritage of sacred storytelling designed to uncover, express, and transform that story. Discover how your personal stories are wrapped up in the larger cultural and religious narratives that surround you. Learn techniques to access your sacred story, share it orally and in writing, and engage in deep listening to the stories of others.

Enjoy an integrated retreat in which storytelling is complemented by meditation, song, chant, journaling, and constructive interreligious and cross-cultural dialogue. In the company of three scholars (one Jewish, one Christian, and one Muslim), come study classic and contemporary narratives about identity formation, interpersonal relationships, and interfaith dynamics.

Recommended reading Jennifer Howe Peace, Or Rose, and Gregory Mobley, My Neighbor’s Faith: Stories of Interreligious Encounter, Transformation and Growth.
