Street Retreat

09:00 am to 04:00 pm
Shalom Community Center
http://www.shalomcommunitycenter.org

The Street Retreat is an opportunity to encounter ourselves in engagement with the streets of Bloomington and its residents. As we examine our fears, prejudices, strengths, and openings, we find connection and beauty.

The Street Retreat will start with group sharing, then a 4-5 hour solo walk in our city, followed by a closing meal and reflection.

A $50 donation to the work of Shalom is requested, but ability to give financially will not be a barrier to participation. Only eight spots available.
