Five to Thrive – 6 Hour Retreat/Workshop

I am grateful to be alive. But the older I get the more I am saying to myself, “I do not want to just survive, I want to thrive.”

What will we do:

We will play five games to Thrive. These games (or if you prefer, exercises/practices) blend Christian practices with current research findings in psychology.

By the end of the day you will have experienced 5 games you can play any time that will increase your well-being and the well-being of everyone in your life.

  • Game 1 Body- Mind Team
  • Game 2 Flash Prayers
  • Game 3 Three Bites of Pleasure
  • Game 4 Lectio Divina with the Book of Nature
  • Game 5 Talking Back

What to wear: Clothing you can move freely in. Shoes for walking.

What to bring:

1. A 3 minute story of a time or season of your life when you were thriving. What were the characteristics of this time/season or what were contributing factors to this thriving?

2. Journal (if you use one).

3. Pot luck offering for lunch.
