Companion’s Mission Statement: Companions on the Inner Way offers a safe communal place to explore our deep longings for the Holy. Grounded in the Christian tradition, our contemplative retreats incorporate body, mind, and soul through presentations, dialogue, spiritual practices, art, music, movement, and worship with Eucharist. We strive to create an environment that is theologically curious, radically welcoming, and liturgically vibrant.

and Social Transformation.”

Speaker: Enuma Okoro
March 1-6, 2020
Description: We live in a time where issues of identity and belonging are points of both public and private controversy and debate, and determine the outcomes of the lives of millions of people. It is essential to know the role that stories and narratives play in our perceptions and in our actions in the world. But this begins by acknowledging and owning our own stories and working narratives. Understanding the power of stories and narratives is a matter of us living well in the world together, and effecting transformative change for our local and global communities. This retreat will focus on the power of story and narrative and learning to tell ours for the benefit of personal and social transformation.
Format: Each day includes lecture and dialogue with Enuma Okoro; small group community around spiritual reading; corporate and individual times of silence and contemplation; worship with Eucharist; and communing with God through movement, art, and nature.
Location: Serra Retreat Center, Malibu, California
