Engage your Heart and Feed Your Spirit– It’s all Happening in Spa

October 2017

The annual EUU fall retreat will be held October 27-29 in the hills above beautiful Spa, Belgium. The Corsendonk Sol Cress Center has been a favorite UU retreat site for many years, and is the top choice for the Netherlands fellowship.  (Yes, yes, we know that Belgium is not part of the Netherlands, but it’s in the Benelux, right?)


The Sol Cress center is very comfortable and attractive on the inside, and the grounds offer both vistas and woods for long autumn walks. Or you can pop down into the charming village on foot or via the free lift. And while there are no guarantees about weather, the autumn in Belgium can be sunny and beautiful.


For many of us, retreats are a staple of UU life, but just in case you have not yet attended an EUU retreat, consider the chance to connect with your wider European UU community. This is valuable for all of us, but especially for those of you with children. After all, many of us come to church to find a liberal religious home for our kids. Retreats feed the spirit and build our community.


And then there are the workshops. And excursions. And quite time… to just breathe. Of course, UUs also come to retreats to hear from the luminaries among us, and this retreat is no exception with the Reverend Diane Rollert speaking about,  “Engaging the Heart, Ways to Spirit.” Diane says, “As Unitarians and Universalists, we have the freedom to chart our own spiritual paths, yet we live with a challenging dichotomy. We’re often caught in thinking mode. We question and we analyze, while our hearts cry out for deeper spiritual experience....".


A final note: When you are packing, don’t forget to bring your swimsuit because Spa’s famous thermal baths are an easy walk from the retreat center.


Registration will open soon. Watch the Unifier for details. Questions? Contact: euuretreat@nuuf.nl
