Women of the Canyon

We imagine ancient godly women, the ones we call saints, soaring in the spiritual ether far above us, blissful in prayer and effortless in sacrifice. Yet when we meet saints in their humanity, their real life “canyon” experiences reveal them to be broken and beautiful, faithful and flawed, just as we are. Journey the terrain with Karen as she traces the true stories of six Christian women from across centuries and cultures—and discovers fresh guidance for our everyday pilgrimage.

Scholarships are available. To apply for a scholarship, first register for a retreat to secure a space. Then apply for a scholarship after paying the $100 deposit. In the event of a full scholarship, your deposit will be refunded.

Plan to arrive at Laity Lodge anytime after 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 16. The retreat will officially commence with a 6:00 p.m. reception at the Great Hall and will conclude Sunday, January 19, following an 11:00 a.m. brunch.
