“FRIENDSHIP: The Many Faces and Phases”
An Interfaith Retreat for Men
May 17 - 19, 2019
Our Lady of the Pines Retreat Center in Freemont, OH
An invitation to men to re-examine the space in their lives where real friendship could be: An experiential retreat that provides an opportunity to continue to grow as we explore friendship with Oneself, Spouse/Partner/Intimate Friends, Peers and others, and intimacy with God.
As social beings, capable of forming close bonds with each other, friendship comes in many forms, or stages. Yet some characteristics are common to each: trust, compassion, empathy, honesty, common interests, mutual respect, understanding, and affection are just some of the traits of true friendship. Enjoying each other’s company, the space to be ”heard”, and support without judgment are things we as humans all need from each other. Studies clearly link ties to close friends with highest levels of happiness and mental and physical well-being.
Join us as we explore together this mysterious, wonderful, and at times, challenging area of life – friendship!
