Happy New Year and Merry Epiphany, almost! In celebration, these three wise women are stopping by with a gift for you. You might know that some folks celebrate Epiphany (January 6) as Women’s Christmas. Originating in Ireland, where it is known as Nollaig na mBan, Women’s Christmas began as a day when the women set aside time to enjoy a break and celebrate together at the end of the holidays.

It’s become a tradition for me to create a new retreat each year that you can use on Women’s Christmas or whenever you need some time for respite and reflection, alone or with others. This year’s retreat is titled “The Path We Make by Dreaming” and includes readings, art, questions, and blessings. You can download it as a PDF.

There is no cost for the retreat. It’s my Women’s Christmas gift to you, with such gratitude for your presence on my path. (And it’s not for women only!) For a link to the retreat and more about Women’s Christmas, visit this page at my Sanctuary of Women blog:

Women’s Christmas 2018: The Path We Make by Dreaming

I would love for you to pass along the gift by sharing the link with your friends via Facebook, Twitter, or any other way you’re connected.

I pray that in this new year, you will find wondrous dreams to live into. I am so grateful for you and am sending many blessings your way.

    Thank you very much Jan! I am thinking I will facilitate this retreat in the summer when the Women’s Bible Study has an annual Spiritual Spa Day. Blessings to you as you continue to follow the path that the Lord has laid out for you.

    Jan, I am using selections from a number of your Women’s Christmas retreats on Jan. 13, 2018 for a local group of women. What a treasure trove of beauty and wisdom and wonderful questions you have given here over the years! I feel such gratitude for all that I have learned and continue to learn from you and Gary. Many blessings upon you in this new year.

    Bless you Jan for once again sharing your women’s retreat. On Sunday the Phoenix book club is meeting to share your retreat and a cup of tea next to the fireplace. It is still quite wintery here but our souls are warmed by your retreat experience. This is the third time we have done this through the years. Thank you so much for helping us share our faith and enjoy your wonderfully inspiring work!
