12/3-12/5 RETREAT: Spiritually Surviving/Thriving as a Latter-day Saint

A Latter-day Faith Retreat



December 3-5, 2021, Salt Lake City

Within an energetic, high-demand, service-oriented religion like Mormonism, it is so easy for us to lose sight that the key to joy, including in our church lives, is spiritual and personal self-transformation, coming to (re-)discover and grow into our highest selves as eternal, divine spirits. Too often we find ourselves simply going through the motions of a spiritual life, living out of pre-scripted and seldom-examined stories and worldviews. We seek a place at the grand banquet table we’ve heard about and are invited to, yet we too often discover the same basic pot-luck fare. Where do we find nourishment? 

If you feel like you are spiritually starving and long to (re)connect with God, Spirit, Love, your True Self, please come join us at this retreat. It will be co-led by Latter-day Faith podcast host Dan Wotherspoon, life coach and highly sought-after speaker Jana Spangler, and writer, activist, and insightful teacher Jody England Hansen. But YOU and the others in attendance will be in the real driver’s seat. Let’s discuss faith, belief, spiritual journeys, Jesus (and what he was really teaching rather than the water-downed version that has come down to us today), God, Holy Ghost, myth, ritual, prayer, discernment, spiritual practices, and more! Whatever you have in mind, we’re excited to dive into!

In choosing to attend, you are saying you want “more”—more depth, richness, understanding, and experiencing! More YOU! We can’t wait for you to join us!

In addition to being able to attend the retreat in person, you will also have access to three monthly calls through Zoom in which we can continue where we have left off!

The retreat includes lunch and dinner on Saturday the 4th, and lunch on Sunday the 5th. Our venue will require all participants to be fully vaccinated and practice appropriate measure to reduce the spread of Covid-19 infections. When you register, you will be asked for your vaccination status.

  • Friday begins at 6pm
  • Saturday runs from 9am until whenever (with all the evening portion consisting of relaxation and fun) 
  • Sunday goes from 9am to 5pm.

After you register, you’ll be directed to a donation page for the retreat. Latter-day Faith, as a project of the Faith Journey Foundation is a non-profit, and all donations are voluntary. We are recommending a donation of $350 for individual participants, or $600 for couples. Scholarships will be available.
