Join us for the 2019 W&R Pacific Central District Retreat
March 7 – 10, 2019
at the Enchanted Hills Retreat Center in the hills above Napa, California.
Women and Religion is planning our 2019 retreat at Enchanted Hills Camp and we’d love to have you join us. Enchanted Hills Camp sustained major damage to the lower camp during the wildfire that devastated the North Bay in 2017, but the upper camp where we stay was virtually untouched, the camp is open for business, and they are delighted to have us back.
Our retreat starts at 5pm on Thursday, March 7, and runs through Sunday March 10, at 1pm. There will be workshops, opportunities for down time, great meals, comfy accommodations, and the company of intelligent, interesting (mostly UU) women. In keeping with our theme “Let Your Freak Flag Fly”, we are reading Middlesex by Jeffery Eugenides, and there will be a “book club” session at the retreat to talk about it.
You may pay either via PayPal or by sending a check. (If paying by check, make it payable to W&R – PCD and send to Beverly Morgan, UUFRC, 2124 Brewster Ave., Redwood City, CA 94403.)
Prices are as follows:
- 3 nights + 9 meals (Thursday dinner thru Sunday lunch) = $300; if paid by February 1st, deduct $30 and pay $270
- 2 nights + 7 meals (Friday lunch thru Sunday lunch) = $250; if paid by February 1st, deduct $30 and pay $220
- Saturday only (3 meals) = $50
If you know any women who have never joined us and would enjoy this retreat, please share this information. We will deduct $100 from the 2-night and 3-night prices for first-timers.
If you need a scholarship to help with the retreat cost, we are happy to accommodate you in exchange for your help with some aspects of the retreat. Register online, or contact Bev directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Let Your Freak Flag Fly”
freak flag; (n): 1) A characteristic, mannerism, or appearance of a person, either subtle or overt, which implies unique, eccentric, creative, adventurous or unconventional thinking. 2) Letting loose, being down with your cool self, especially in front of a group of strangers. Your inner freak that wants to come out, but often is suppressed from social anxiety. (urbandictionary.com)
