Reflections on the Life of the Spirit

A Weekend Retreat July 14-16 for Young Adults ages 15-25

Little Pond Arts Retreat in collaboration with the Baha’is of the Lehigh Valley, will hold a weekend retreat for young adults ages 15 -25, Friday July 14 at 5pm – Sunday July 16 at 2pm. We’ll eat together, play games, make art, share stories, and reflect on the writings of the Baha’i Faith.

“…an exploration of an individual’s twofold moral purpose: to take charge of their own intellectual and spiritual growth and to contribute to the transformation of society.”
