Educators' Repose 2022


If the world of an educator is anything, it is FULL! And while it may be rewarding, it is also TIRING! Pressures and expectations are HEAVY!

And there is always the lingering cloud over my head with the message I HAVE NOT DONE ALL I COULD!

Perhaps this suggests you could benefit from some guided rest, in a peaceful and beautiful place, where you can have some undistracted time to talk with your God who loves you, and with some fellow educators on the challenging path you travel each year. Perhaps you could benefit by coming home to be with God to share what is on your heart with Him, and hear what his heart is for you.

If so, please consider registering for the Educators’ Summer Repose at the Glen Eyrie Conference Center in Colorado Springs, CO.

Led by author, educator, chaplain, and spiritual guide, Donovan Graham will guide you through a time of undistracted conversation with God, allowing you to enter more fully into life through the mystery of the One who helps and sustains us. Join us for a time to refresh your (likely) weary soul.

*If you’d like to come earlier or stay after your retreat dates, lodging is available at a Glen Eyrie Programs discounted rate. Please call our reservations line at 719-265-7050 for details.

Registrations are limited to just 15 participants.
