The Holy Shift Cohort - 2020-2021 Cohort

Do you have questions about what is happening in your spiritual life?  Have you found yourself having doubts, asking questions, feeling as if you don’t ‘fit in,’ and perhaps even feeling that your faith is slipping through your fingertips? How would it feel to know that what you may be experiencing is completely normal and may even be a sign of deeper growth in your life with God? What if you were in the midst of a “holy shift”… an invitation into intimacy, entering a stage of faith that you never knew existed? 


This cohort offers you an opportunity to explore this shift – to make sense of it, to give words to it, and to know that you are not alone.  In addition, we will look at the other stages, giving you a chance to understand the whole of your journey so far and have a sense of where you may be heading.  This  will all be done in a safe, compassionate, and encouraging environment. 

There will be a maximum of eight persons in this cohort. The cohort, based on the book The Critical Journey by Janet Hagberg and Robert Guelich, will meet for five 2-day retreats from 9 am to 5 pm each day over an eight month period.  

This will be an intense experience as it may involve unearthing some painful memories and experiences. It will also be renewing and may even be healing, both spiritually and psychologically, as you begin to see God’s hand in your entire spiritual story and as you resonate with the stories of others. 

This cohort will meet on the following weekends:

  • September 12-13, 2020
  • November 14-15, 2020
  • January 9-10, 2021
  • March 6-7, 2021
  • May 1-2, 2021

Participant cost (excluding travel and lodging) is $2,000 per person.  This cost covers all materials, light continental breakfasts, lunches and snacks on retreat days.  A $200 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of registration.  The balance of the cost can be paid in installment payments.  

We are committed to individuals who are called to Kavanna’s programs being able to participate so please reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if financial assistance may be needed.
