Course Description

This five-part retreat journeys through some of the best-loved and little-known passages in the biblical Book of Proverbs to hear what wisdom they have for our modern life. Each session will have a meditation on a different part of the book of Proverbs and a prayer practice to accompany it. This retreat is led by the Rev. Dr. Hillary Raining, an Episcopal priest, author, seminary teacher, spiritual director, yoga & meditation instructor, bee keeper, and forest therapist. Hillary is the rector of St. Christopher's Episcopal Church in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, and founder and regular instructor on The Hive.
