Register for Sept. 13-15 ‘Bread Rising, Spirit Raising’ retreat at St. Mary-of-the-Woods

Get in touch with your daily bread and explore the spiritual in the everyday in the “Bread Rising, Spirit Raising” retreat being offered Sept. 13-15 at White Violet Center for Eco-Justice at St. Mary-of-the-Woods.

The retreat will use bread-making as a means to explore spirituality, meditation, mindfulness and intention while preparing the food that nourishes us every day. Explore the connections between the everyday experience of preparing food and the spirituality that feeds the soul.

The retreat will begin at 6 p.m. Sept. 13 and run through 11 a.m. Sept. 15. Cost is $350 for residents and $250 for those choosing to commute.

Leading the experience will be Robyn Morton, associate director of White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, and Sister Paul Bernadette Bounk, a Sister of Saint Joseph of Carondelet, who has worked many years in ecological ministry and retreat coordination.

“I hope participants take away a much greater appreciation for the place that food has in our lives and more mindfulness when preparing foods as well as more care and appreciation for what we've been given and the way all of it connects with the divine,” Morton said.

No previous baking experience is necessary.

The registration deadline for “Bread Rising, Spirit Raising” is Sept. 6. To register or for more information, contact Morton at, 812-535-2932 or visit
