Registration includes all retreat events, Friday 6:30 through Sunday 1:00; all retreat materials; snacks on Friday evening; lunch on Saturday and Sunday.
The "Kitchen Table" is open again, and this time our focus is Questioning Unquestioned Answers!
This special retreat, offered by request of those who have attended our past retreats, offers a special opportunity to be part of a unique group of folks (all of whom consider themselves more spiritual than religious) in an intimate and dynamic environment of exploration, study, and fun!
All retreat sessions will be held in the beautiful home of Revs. Drs. Bil & Cher Holton, who have generously opened their doors to invite us in! This warm, relaxing environment lends itself to inspiring creativity, open conversation, and spiritual growth!

“In authentic celebration, people are willing to step out of their daily routine, drop their outer masks, and be fully present in the occasion: being a part (we) and also being apart (me). In the experience of we is the collective sense of family, inclusiveness, communion, belonging, connection, solidarity, a common purpose, vision, and values. We cannot be complete as individuals unless we are deeply involved in community.” (excerpt from Corporate Celebration)
The content of our retreats is always unique, different, and deeply enriching! We co-create the content as a group, using a "Think Tank" style of interaction and sharing. The retreat includes interactive participation, deep-dive discussions, enriching experiences, supporting Ted Talks and other media to stimulate ideas and exploration, meaningful ritual, networking, and fun!
Our goal is to keep the cost of the retreat as reasonable as we possibly can! All events will be held in the private setting of the home of Revs. Bil & Cher Holton: 1405 Autumn Ridge Drive, Durham, NC 27712

This may be personal but in my case... you opened me up--- to be free and safe. To be vulnerable, to take chances with my thinking --- I think most were feeling this phenomena...
I liked that the facilitators were not stuck to a rigid schedule. You folks went with the flow of the group and that showed the experience and the maturity of the facilitators.
The shift in my thinking and my walk through my waking day is still palpable, and rich with peace and calmness.
The Breakthrough Difference that Makes This Retreat Value-Driven:
In addition to the amazing facilitators (shameless promotion!!), the most powerful thing about this retreat is that YOU get to help create the content and participate in the process!
Your facilitators have created a list of potential "Unquestioned Answers" that pique their interest, which are listed here. But we are asking you to tell us what YOUR "Unquestioned Answers" are, that you'd like to bring to the group discussion.
(Unquestioned Answers are those beliefs we've held for so long we think they are Absolute, but they really need to be questioned as we grow in our understanding and deepen our spirituality. So what's been on your mind? As we get closer to the date, we will review all the topic submissions and create a specific agenda! (Caveat: You have to be registered to submit your topics!)
Here are a few of the "Unquestioned Answers" from your facilitators and a few of the retreat registrants who have already submitted topics:
Sound Interesting? This is just a starting list of potential topics! Once you register, you get to add your ideas to the mix! The retreat will include deep-dive discussions, inspiring interactive events, self-exploration, and opportunities for incredible spiritual growth! Fasten your seatbelts! It's going to be an amazing ride!
