ICON WRITING with Teresa Harrison

Teresa Harrison and Sandra Hjelm will return again for the 12th annual Icon Writing Retreat. Icon writing is an ancient painting technique in which the process and the finished work inspire prayerful meditation. The joy of creating an icon in community is to experience and share the love of God.

December 4-7


The Enneagram Conference, led by Dr. Joe Howell, returns for another enlightening experience revealing to the children of God this ancient process of raising consciousness. The three day conference will focus on explicating the wisdom of this spiritual system to those who want to develop their awareness of the graced complexity of human nature and relationships.  Two tracks will be offered, one for beginners and one for persons who are familiar with the Enneagram basics and are ready for more advanced information.

Dec. 27-Jan.1

Winterlight 39

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.

January 15-18

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. You may choose to paint an icon of St. Christopher or the Holy Face of Jesus.

February 22-24

Bowen Conference

Modern Voices Answering Ancient Calls
Inspiring actions, remarkable results, and visions for a new and revitalized Episcopal Church. Learn from keynoters Rev. Dan Matthews, former rector of Trinity Wall Street, and the Rt. Rev. Charles Duvall, retired Bishop of the Central Gulf Coast as they present five guest speakers, both clergy and lay, whose congregations are bucking the trend of declining membership and shrinking budgets.

February 27 - March 1

Church Leadership Conference

Charging Up, Charging Out: Energizing Church Leadership
Discover new tools for successful ministry and explore church in a different way by developing a team-based set of leadership strategies at this year’s Church Leadership Conference, presented by Kanuga and the Episcopal Church Foundation.

June 8-12

Christian Formation Conference

Hope in the Midst of Crisis: From Tragedy to Healing through Forgiveness
How do you make your parish a safe haven when disaster strikes? How do you prepare yourself for the psychological impacts on your parish? How do you lead your parish to forgive? How do you teach forgiveness in a society focused on retaliation? Listen as keynoter Lyndon Harris shares his inspiring story of being thrust into the center of tragedy on September 11, 2001 while serving as a priest at St. Paul’s Chapel in New York City, just beside the World Trade Center.

June 14-19

Youth Week

One of Kanuga’s oldest traditions, Youth Week brings together youth and adults 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 21-26

Renewal Conference

The never-ending bustle of a high-octane workplace. The three-places-at-once gymnastics of the after-school carpool. The siren’s call of the smartphone. Our lives have become inescapably full. The Church has proven that it, too, is not immune to the culture of over-commitment. Believers in search of rest are often met with a list of volunteer opportunities. So what does Christianity have to say to the “weary and heavy laden”? What might it mean to rest in God’s promises?

August 16-21

Liturgical Arts Conference
