April 19-24: Academy for Spiritual Formation

By WV UMC Admin

Managing Stress: body, mind, and spirit.

How would your life change if you understood stress management as a spiritual practice? As you think about this retreat, we hope you are excited about engaging with the rhythms of learning, worship, fellowship, and silence. In today’s frantic and demanding world, these rhythms are essential to developing a healthy relationship with stress.

A place of peace

We will gather at John XXIII Pastoral Center Charleston, WV, where you will experience genuine Christian hospitality at this modern facility nestled in a picturesque natural setting just minutes from downtown Charleston, West Virginia.

John XXIII is a beautiful facility with walking trails and plenty of space for silence and reflection. The facility has recently been renovated and is comfortable and welcoming!

Participants will have private hotel-style rooms (shared rooms for married couples are optional). Breakfast, lunch, an afternoon snack, and dinner will all be provided on-site. The staff is wonderful about working with food sensitives and preferences.

All academy activities will take place in the main building which is fully accessible.

Cost is $650. Scholarships are available (see the brochure for more details).
