Gift of Wonder Online Retreat

For 90 days of access, this online retreat is based on The Gift of Wonder, but with much more! Going deeper into a discovery of new depths of awe to draw us closer to God. I invite you to reawaken your inner child and rediscover the depths of awe and wonder that reconnect us to our passionate God who delights in life, celebrates with joy and exudes a sense of awe and wonder. This interactive process will have us remembering our childhood stories, doodling for fun, painting on rocks and and relearning the awe and wonder of nature walks, joyspot sightings, compassion games and exercises that enable us to delight in God in new and creative ways.

We will email you details about our monthly Zoom calls where we connect with others in the course, ask Christine questions and discuss topics in the course.

The Gift of Wonder book is required for this course. Click here to purchase.

Description

Jesus told his disciples that to enter the kingdom of God they needed to become like children yet there is rarely anything childlike about our faith. We suffer from play deprivation, nature deficit disorder, awe deletion and compassion fatigue and as a result we are God deprived too.
Video lessons, audio presentations, survey questions and downloads are just some of the lesson content contained in this online retreat. See the full course outline below.

Endorsements for The Gift of Wonder Online Retreat

As times grow bleaker the gift of wonder (and The Gift of Wonder) takes on increasing poignancy. It feels a bit odd to suggest this because I also think that, really, the gift of wonder is always vital. But I see the gift of wonder as being part of that light that shines in the darkness that the darkness cannot overcome. May the Lord grace us with the ability to consciously choose to pursue the gift of wonder during these times and, in the midst of our difficulties, may we continue to be delighted at the presents and Presence of the Lord all around us.
Clint Baldwin, Executive Director/CEO Word Made Flesh
Christine’s book and workshop are playfully great supports through the wonder landscape of the soul. Her personal childhood stories encourage and inspire a second look at our own growing up experiences and foster a reframing of these years in terms of curiosity and God’s companionship.

The Gift of Wonder Retreat inspired me to play, to sit with awe and wonder, and to create as a way of connecting with God. It makes me want more. This retreat is a wonderful antidote to these stressful times! Come and play!

Lisa Scandrette, author of Belonging and Becoming

 

Christine’s work is not meant to just be read. It is meant to be practiced and experienced! This is a great way to incorporate prayers, stories, and activities to increase wonder in your life!
