Weekend Retreat on Spiritual Growth

Are you questioning your self, what do you want, do you know what do really want for your self? Do you often feel lost or confused about your life? Do you wish you were being more of who you are and working in the field of your passions? Have you ever thought about what life means to you? Are you often doubtful of yourself and your directions? Do you hear that little voice inside of you, but the logic voice is? Do you want to feel free to do and express yourself? Do you feel like there is more to life, but you don’t know what that is?
