Going Naked: A Retreat to Inspire Pilgrimage Mindsets in the Everyday

Dominican Center at Marywood, 2025 Fulton St East, Grand Rapids, MI 49503 View Map
Saturday, June 20 - 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM

Based on her book Going Naked: The Camino de Santiago & Life as Pilgrimage, author Teresa Mateus will facilitate a retreat morning exploring the themes of the Camino path and how these same sacred rituals can illuminate the pilgrim's path of the everyday. Activities engage the creative mind through shared art and storytelling practices and breath and movement practices.

The space will be open to explore themes of grief, loss, and emotional pain as well as healing, joy, and celebration as they show up in each of our stories. Explore what we need to let go of along the journey of life and the pilgrimage into the soul - so that we can find the vulnerability found in our own "going naked" - a sacred release to be able to travel the path into ourselves and our truth more fully and deeply.

Teresa Mateus, LCSW, E-RYT 200 is a trauma therapist, meditation and integrative healing practitioner, professor of social work, author, and speaker on issues of spirituality, activism, and healing. She is the co-founder and executive director of The Mystic Soul Project and co-creator of Trauma Response and Crisis Care for Movements. Teresa is also a fellow with Spiritual Direction International.

Presenter: Teresa Mateus, LCSW, Author, Trauma Therapist, and Spiritual Direction International Fellow
