Four Essential B's: How Beliefs Affect Our Bodies, Brains, and Bonds JulyJul 21 2023 05:00pm - JulyJul 23 2023 11:00am1001 Davis Street, Dubuque, United States


Four Essential B's: How Beliefs Affect Our Bodies, Brains, and Bonds
Friday, July 21 - Sunday, July 23, at Shalom Spirituality Center
Facilitated by Anne Kertz Kernion

If you are interested in the intersection of spiritual practices and our health and well-being, this retreat is for you! During our weekend together, we will explore several areas of that intersection with multimedia presentations. First, how do our beliefs and practices affect our bodies, down to the cellular level? And second, how do our attitudes and beliefs, prayers, and participation in rituals, affect our cognitive health and relationships with others?

We will experience Chair Yoga and several forms of silent prayer and meditation. We'll also create bookmarks with your name on them (Calligraphy by Anne) and have ample time for group discussions and contemplative practices. You will leave with various tools to nourish your body, mind, and spirit.

$300 per person (includes program, overnight accommodations, and meals) or $250 per person for commuters (includes a comfortable space to rest and relax during your visit, program, and meals; no overnight accommodations); please register online at or by calling 563.582.3592 by July 14, 2023.
