The Gift of Your Story, a Retreat at Shadowcliff Mountain Lodge in Grand Lake, CO

Monday, June 22 – Friday, June 26, 2020

Here’s an opportunity for reconnecting with all that is meaningful to you in a setting that caters to spiritual exploration and self-discovery.

Our personal stories are unique treasures. Discover, claim, and preserve them. Within each of us is a hidden wealth of wisdom and insight. Your stories reveal what you know and value, and they can become a legacy every bit as valuable as personal property.

What gives your life meaning? What experiences have shaped you? Reflect upon and learn
how to share this valuable material. The Gift of Story workshop weaves together a wonderful mix of simple writing techniques, personal reflection, and outdoor experience. Writing activities will focus on values and experiences that give meaning, with an option to
share what you write. Optional outdoor activities will include exploring the beautiful Grand Lake area by boat, on foot, and perhaps by car (for wildlife viewing). There will be ample time to relax, either alone or together with new-found friends. Come on this amazing journey with us!

Accommodations & Dining
Guests spend nights in the cozy mountain lodge at Shadowcliff and enjoy a full course of activities planned by its professional faculty. Shadowcliff serves home-cooked meals from their kitchen in a family-style dining room. Special diets may be accommodated with notice.

Laurie Gudim will be your retreat leader. Her exploration of the spiritual from many perspectives and her love of people and their individual sacred journeys make her an excellent guide. Come be nurtured by Laurie and the Shadowcliff staff. Learn, rest, and grow.

The registration deadline for this retreat is April 15, 2020. Go to Consider making a gift of this retreat to someone who would love it.
