SpiritRest leaders have made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person retreat this year.
We realized last week that a cluster of challenges was facing us: registration is unusually low, COVID is surging, and we are scheduled to share the retreat center with two other retreats, so will not be able to ensure their safety precautions or have access to our regular
Our low registration is in line with what other UU gatherings are seeing this year. There may be a variety of reasons, but surely concern about COVID is one of them. At a time we would like to reassure potential retreatants of our safety measures, we are positioned to be in an unusually crowded retreat situation.
This combination of factors has brought us to cancel this year’s retreat. We know this will be a disappointment for those who have registered, just as it is a disappointment to those of us who lead the retreat.
We are looking forward to being together in 2023.
