“Musings of a Reluctant Contemplative: the doing/being conundrum"

Dr. Garry Schmidt, Executive Director of Directions: Centre for Sacramental Vocation in exploring the shape of our souls and the ministry that comes from within.

About the retreat leader:
Garry Schmidt is no stranger to Utah; after completing his doctoral work on developing and sustaining clergy wholeness, he was on staff at Salt Lake Theological Seminary - teaching on spiritual formation, psychology and spirituality. While in Utah, he also led clergy support groups and is a familiar presence to some in our Presbytery. Garry is the Executive Director of Directions: Centre for Sacramental Vocation and currently serves an Anglican Church in Vernon, BC.  He has led seminars on topics ranging from ‘Noticing Interior Spiritual Movements’ to ‘Pride & Despair: The faces of burnout’. Garry comes highly recommended to us and we already know we’ll want to be with him more than 2 days!
