At Sophia Institute we are pivoting because of the pandemic and learning to bring you programs that you know and love virtually in the comfort of your home. We are pleased to announce that this program will be a VIRTUAL EVENT. Have you ever taken a personal program at home? If not, then doing so will be something worthwhile for you and a new, potentially lifelong, practice that will be beneficial ongoing. A recording of this event will be provided to all those who have registered for this event. The recording is exclusively for registrants only.


Dr Joan Borysenko

Crossroads for an unprecedented time

“Crisis sets our souls on fire – a fire fueled by sorrow, grief and anguish.  But this same soul burns with an eternal inner flame, just waiting to be aroused by the fans of hope and possibility. Once ablaze, our inner flames can consume the darkness of despair with the lights of love and promise… and they are powered by the virtues and values of human goodness.” —DR. JOAN BORYSENKO

Do you feel like a caterpillar swelling inside of a cocoon in this unprecedented time? Do you know that there’s an inner metamorphosis going on, and are you ready to put your ear to the ground and listen for and to your heart’s longing?

Crossroads is an opportunity distinct from any other retreat. It is an opening to discover wise ways to say “yes” to life, yet again. Or, maybe say “yes” to your own personal transformation yet again. Are you asking questions like, “How can I best honor my gifts, my family, and the larger Spirit that’s unfolding in a way that feels gentle, true, and powerful? Is there a new purpose for my life that is ready to emerge?”

Successful and resilient individuals understand that change is the very nature of life. Change can be an exhilarating process – rather than a daunting one – when we learn to understand its transformative power in our lives.

Throughout this retreat you will delve into the wise elements of change. Dr. Joan Borysenko will lead you into exploring your own rites of passage and claiming new possibilities you dare dream. Our wise master teacher will lead us into new territory of discovery relative to the choices we have made and will yet make.

• Map the journey of change and identify where you are

• Discern the direction of the underlying flow

• Identify the adversaries of change within and without

• Drawing from your own vast creative realm of infinite potential to encounter new ways to say yes” to life!

• Surrender the old to claim the new

In the shelter of one another, using processes of inquiry that invite deeper ways of knowing, we’ll let the mud settle so that we can see more clearly together and as individuals.
