What:

“Dancing with God: Emerging in Sacredness”

Announcing the latest in our continuing series of women’s retreats at Urantia Foundation, the Daughters of God facilitator team (Katharina Becker, Doreen Heyne, Carolyn Prentice, and Line St-Pierre) invites you to an intimate, experiential, and fun weekend.

In our next retreat, “Dancing with God: Emerging in Sacredness,” four Daughters of God have designed a program where we will cocreate a milieu of trust within a spiritual circle, so that we can explore together such questions as:

  • What does it mean to you that "Jesus never failed to exalt the sacredness of the individual"?  170:3.10 (1862.7)
  • "Angels do not invade the sanctity of the human mind." How do you relate to this? 113:5.1 (1245.7)
  • How do you become aware of the sacred in the drudgery of everyday life?

The Daughters of God Mission: To enhance the status of being a woman dedicated to spiritual growth, intellectual advancement, and moral progress.

The Daughters of God Vision: To touch women's hearts by exploring the dignity of being Daughters of God by honoring their value and importance, and by cooperating with the divine spirit to bring forth the beautiful harvest of the fruits of the spirit.

Where:

533 W Diversey Parkway, Chicago, IL 60614

Cost:

The cost for the three days is $240.00 and includes shared overnight accommodations and all meals.

Are you familiar with our Library Placement Program?

Spread the teachings by placing The Urantia Book in libraries or alternative libraries.

For years readers have placed The Urantia Book in public libraries. Another library placement opportunity-the alternative library-remains untapped. Libraries in coffee shops, hotels, cruise ships, bed and breakfast inns, youth hostels, restaurants, truck stops, waiting rooms, nursing homes, churches and fraternity and sorority houses are the perfect spots for people to find The Urantia Book. So next time you stay at, or pass by, an establishment that has a library, place a copy of The Urantia Book on their library shelf.
