SOULscape Weekend Retreat Supports Students in Finding Meaning, Purpose
A SOULscape Weekend Getaway, sponsored by the Office of Health Promotion and Hendricks Chapel, will take place Feb. 27-28, at the Minnowbrook Conference Center in Blue Mountain Lake. Based on the popular campus conversation series Soulful Sit-Downs, SOULscape welcomes students from across the University to come together for a weekend of contemplation, inspiration and fellowship.
A limited amount of spaces for SOULscape are available to students who apply on the SOULscape webpage. There will be no cost for the weekend, which will include round-trip transportation, meals and accommodations at Minnowbrook. The deadline to apply is Feb. 5, and applicants are expected to hold the weekend date in their calendars until notifications are sent out on Feb. 12.
The event will be led by SU alum Sean Martinelli ’15, founder of Soulful Sit-Downs, and Jill Catherine, founder of 44Hearts. Martinelli and Catherine will lead participants in conversations about themes like passion, gratitude and vulnerability. The event will also consist of exercises to help students create a vision for their life, and an introduction to basic techniques of meditation and yoga.
Students from all disciplines and class years are encouraged to apply.
