For more than 85 years, Kanuga has sponsored and operated conferences and retreats to provide enlightening, restful and transforming experiences. Our goal is to offer you a peaceful place to focus on your relationship with the Holy and be inspired to return to your home with a renewed sense of purpose to reveal God’s grace to the world. With over 10 Kanuga-sponsored events offered each year, our hope is you’ll find one that resonates with you.

See upcoming Kanuga-sponsored conferences and retreats below.

2016 Conferences and Retreats

 

Dates

CONFERENCE / RETREAT NAME

February 13-19

Iconography with Suzanne Schleck

Experience the compelling practice of painting an icon using techniques developed before the year 1000 A.D.  Using gold leaf and egg tempera on gessoed boards, instructor Suzanne Schleck guides you through a week of art and prayer. Schleck has studied iconography for more than 20 years and welcomes experienced artists as well as beginners.

Days begin with an early morning Eucharist followed by an anointing of hands in the studio. Noonday prayers are said before lunch and each day ends with evening prayer in Kanuga’s Chapel of the Transfiguration.

Space is limited to 30 participants.

February 19-21

Church Leadership Conference

In many ways, the institutional church has adapted to the secular world. There are business plans and growth charts and the work of church leadership seems to be the bottom line. It is easy to lose sight of the one reason the church exists: to worship God.

What would it look like if there were a renewed focus on prayer and liturgy? What could the Church become if leadership were more concerned with spiritual well-being than physical or financial? Join us as we explore how churches can refocus their energies and deepen the faith of their membership.

Theme: Be Still and Grow

Keynoters: The Rev. Barbara Cawthorne Crafton, is the founder of the online ministry, The Geranium Farm, and now lives in New Jersey; and The Very Rev. Dr. Neal Michell, Dean and Rector at St. Matthew’s Cathedral in Dallas, Texas

June 13-17

Christian Formation Conference

Take. Bless. Break. Give. These are the words of our faith, but how do we live them out in this complicated, multi-cultural, technologically-advanced century?  How can we be the Church beyond our houses of worship? Includes more than 20 workshops covering racism sensitivity training, means of reconciliation and a variety of formation basics.

June 19-24

Youth Week at Kanuga

One of Kanuga’s oldest traditions, Youth Week brings together youth and adults who work with youth from around the country for a week of fun, friendship and prayer. Through small group discussions, full conference gatherings, music, prayer and play, youth are encouraged to explore their thoughts and beliefs in a welcoming Christian community.

Three different, simultaneous tracks offer youth and adults the chance to spend time with similar-aged participants.

June 26-July 1

Renewal Conference

This summer, spend five days relaxing in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains; learning about God’s plan for your life, enjoying great worship, connecting with friends, encountering Christ in a real and profound way, and experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit. Keynoter: The Rev. Dr. Russell Jones Levenson, Jr., rector of St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston, TX.

August 21-26

Faith, Art and Creative Expression

Explore the Divine through artistic expressions led by talented, encouraging instructors in a nurturing Christian community. Classes are led by some of the finest artisans in their fields. Kits and supplies are provided by instructors at an additional cost. Participants must register for a specific morning class track, leaving afternoons open to explore other classes and projects.

Take advantage of free time by working on your own projects, napping, hiking or simply relaxing in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

August 29-September 2

Nuevo Amanecer

Co-sponsored with the Episcopal Church's Office of Latino/Hispanic Ministries and the Latino Ministries Office of Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), this biennial event will offer practical tools and a network of support to better equip for ministry those working within the Latino/Hispanic community and those who want to be.

Simultaneous interpretation available throughout the conference.

October 16-18

Lansing Lee Conference

The annual Lansing Lee Conference honors the memory of Lansing B. Lee Jr. of Augusta, GA. Lee participated in many aspects of Kanuga’s programs and governance for more than 50 years. The conference focuses on the theme “Practicing the Faith” and explores different dimensions of that topic in the context of the world, nation, the Church and society. The Lansing Lee Conference is made possible by an endowment established by Lee's wife Natalie.

Web page and registration coming soon.

October 27-30

Enneagram Conference

Join Dr. Joseph Howell, author of Becoming Conscious: The Enneagram’s Forgotten Passageway, and the faculty of the Institute for Conscious Being for an in-depth exploration into the Spirituality of the Enneagram. Learn how the Enneagram’s ancient wisdom can bring Jesus’ teachings to life as we remember and embrace our true selves in the perfection of Divine creation.

November 13-19

Icon Writing with Teresa Harrison

Join renowned instructor Teresa Harrison for a course in the ancient technique of icon writing. This process inspires prayerful meditation, both while creating the art and reflecting on the finished piece. Participants will focus on their art while listening to Gregorian chant and harp music, praying with icons, enjoying silent time, taking part in lively group discussions and attending daily Eucharist. Beginners and experienced iconographers will find this course rewarding.

December 27-January 1, 2017

Winterlight 41

If you’re in grades 9-12, take this chance to get away from the distractions of everyday life and spend time meeting new friends, hanging out with old ones, singing, dancing, ringing in the New Year and exploring your thoughts and beliefs in a welcoming Christian community. Adult chaperones will attend all plenary sessions and have their own workshops.

Web page and registration coming soon.
