Laity Lodge – Arriving Here from Laity Lodge on Vimeo.

Every person who ventures out to Laity Lodge brings a story along. Maybe it’s the travails of the day’s travel. Maybe it’s the intensely felt need for retreat after weeks and months of demanding work. Maybe it’s a personal or a family situation that, though left behind for a couple of days, remains present in many ways.

This narrative reality is not just true for guests. It holds up for our staff and leaders and even the Lodge itself. We all arrive, stories in tow, accepting the invitation to slow down long enough to consider where we’ve been and where we’re going…a narrative long-view that, paradoxically, can best be had by being present to what’s at hand.
