Coming Home Again Spiritual Retreat: Reconnect with Nature

On Saturday, February 25, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Fletcher Harper, executive director of GreenFaith and one of the nation’s premier interfaith environmental leaders, will lead a one-day contemplative retreat for people of any spiritual tradition to help them reconnect with their roots in nature. The retreat will be held at the Community of St. John Baptist, 82 West Main Street, Mendham, and is cosponsored by the church and Interweave.

Fletcher, an Episcopal priest, has helped GreenFaith develop innovative programs linking religious belief and practice to the environment. A graduate of Princeton University and Union Theological Seminary, he served as a parish priest for ten years and in leadership positions in the Episcopal Church before becoming GreenFaith’s executive director.

The retreat, which features a presentation, discussion, silence and a shared midday meal, offers participants the chance to recall outdoor spiritual experiences and learn basic outdoor meditation techniques. The cost is $50; $45 for Interweave members.

To register, visit Interweave.org or call 908-277-2120.
