Eastertide is an entire season of feasting—not just a single day. It is the height of the liturgical calendar, as we celebrate Christ's resurrection and our new and abundant life in him. Sometimes we make much of the forty days of Lent, then move on quickly after Easter Sunday. But the two seasons need one another—and we need them both. In that spirit, we offer this retreat as a guided exploration of the mystery of resurrection throughout the whole of this celebratory season. You might even consider joining us for all 4 Lent and Easter retreats.
Each half-day retreat includes an introduction and teaching for any who may be new to the observation of Easter as a whole season (or who would appreciate a refresher or a new perspective). The center portion of the retreat will be spent in prayer, reflection, and practice alone. The last part of our time together will be to re-gather for noticing, questions, workshopping, and further connection. Each retreat date is a stand-alone invitation, though you may find it helpful to join us for one or several from the Lent retreats, as well.
No prior knowledge or experience with Eastertide or the liturgical year is needed to join a guided retreat. Beginners and long-time observers alike will benefit from the intentional time spent in shared practice.

ABOUT SACRED ORDINARY DAYS
Sacred Ordinary Days offers a fresh approach, holistic tools, and time-honored resources to help people grow in Christ-likeness—and help the church come together—through intentional Christian spiritual formation.
We create tools rooted in ancient practices and rhythms but translated with a clean aesthetic, and accessible language. We create courses to help you learn, practice, and connect with kindred spirits. We curate resources that help you fill out your toolkit. Ultimately, we believe that helping people grow in Christlikeness will build the church and, in turn, the kingdom. The building blocks are sacred, ordinary days.
