a gathering space where art + spirit + justice +community meet

Free Space

mini-retreats for the whole self

 Each mini-retreat is uniquely crafted.  During our time together, a small group of participants will engage in prayer, movement, and art making. We will enjoy table fellowship and healthy snacks.  With recycled materials, creativity, and imagination, each participant will create a take-home art piece.

Free Space retreats:

March:  Heart Opening- exploring compassion, love, and connectivity

April:  Awaken to self- meditation, movement, light, and color

May:  Behold- holding the whole self in Divine light and love

June:  Holy Imagination and Wonder

July:  Holy Liturgy- prayer in motion

Please express your interest in participating in the Free Space mini-retreats via email to Helms.  Based upon the interest, a date and, time will be set.  The cost of the retreat is $35 per person to cover the expense of food, leadership, and art supplies.  Each retreat is 2-4 hours long, depending on participant interest.  Make your reservation by emailing Helms at or call (704) 654-7429.  Location (in Charlotte) is to be determined.

Consider hosting your friends for a mini-retreat in your home or another designated location.  Contact Helms about mini-retreat leadership in your setting.
