Your Right Livelihood Retreat
with Kathryn Lorenzen & Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg

Our annual retreat is a welcome refuge from your workaday world to discover what's knocking on the door of your life's work right now, welcome what you're ready to embrace and put into action. Along the way, you'll re-visit your callings, then examine and reset goals that fit your life and work now. With your peers, you'll find greater companionship for the journey as well as new ways to build and sustain your vision and resilience. We'll also relax and have a lot of fun. Find out complete registration information and all about lodging and more here. 

This is also an ideal retreat to come to each year as an inspiring, thoughtful, and loving way to plan out what to cultivate, edit out, and invite into your coming year.

Unity Village

Kansas City

Oct. 20-22, 2022

We'll gather at Unity Village in the Kansas City, Missouri area for a weekend of replenishment, community, and inspiration beginning at 4 p.m. on Fri., Oct. 20 until mid-morning, Sun., Oct. 22. This historic retreat center is renowned as one of the most beautiful, welcoming, and energy-efficient centers in the country. 


What You'll Experience

This retreat offers you a replenishing journey into the work that calls to you and how to artfully plan your best next steps to realize that work, whether it's art, service, or livelihood. Through creative and mindful sessions, you'll unearth more of what you always wanted or suddenly need to discover and enact. 

We find better ways forward through walking our journeys with supportive companions, and the circle we make together will give us greater perspective, help, and ideas. The welcoming, non-judgmental community we make together lifts us toward our bravest and clearest decisions and discoveries.


Come discover the trails on the grounds, visit with your peers, peruse the bookstore or flower gardens, caffeinate in the cafe, wander among the many beautiful pathways, or perch in one of the lovely nooks of Unity Village to hear what calls to you. Registration information here.
