Led by Rev. Leslie Mott, the Pastoral Sabbath Retreat is a time for clergy “to come away by yourselves and rest for a while,” so that we may return renewed to those we serve. Those attending receive materials for reflection and study and have the opportunity to engage in gentle yoga class, guided meditation, group and individual spiritual direction, and prayer. There will also be opportunities morning worship, a time for fellowship for meals, and free time for rest or engage in other relaxation like walking, reading the paper, even taking a nap. “Bliss!” as one participant put it.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Hudson River Presbytery and the PC (USA) Synod of the Northeast, the cost is subsidized for ordained clergy.
