ReNew Retreats

Finding balance, renewing connection, getting centered

Each quarter, Ignite offers a day-long ReNew Retreat.

Are you feeling burned out? Do you sometimes forget why you’re doing social justice work? Are you looking for ways to feed yourself spiritually?

The work of social justice can be exhausting. Long hours, painful setbacks, and the overwhelming needs of our communities can sometimes leave us hopeless, drained, and uninspired.

ReNew focuses on healing and resiliency — deepen your connection with the transformative  power of spiritual practice and immerse yourself in contemplation, reflection, and creativity. Take a half-day retreat for yourself to renew your connection with the source of your passion and your calling for social justice

Through guided meditation, movement, art, and conversation, you’ll identify your own spiritual sources, explore your creative self, and imagine new connections and tools for resiliency.

This workshop is open to all spiritually minded folks — no belief system required. Scholarships available.   Questions?
