MBB Fall Retreat

Building Bridges of Understanding

Finding Your Voice

Do you struggle to effectively express your feelings about your LGBTQ loved ones and the LDS Church's doctrine regarding sexual orientation and gender identity? Would you like to build a bridge of mutual understanding in your home, congregation, and community? Do you want to find the right time to speak up in a meaningful and effective way?


Our Mormons Building Bridges Fall Contemplative Retreat may be just what you need. As with other MBB Retreats, we will draw on the wisdom of activists, poets, scriptures and one another to help us more thoughtfully and skillfully stand our ground, find our voice and speak our truth with empathy and compassion. These contemplative retreats afford you time to slow down, invite the Spirit in, and listen to inner wisdom rather than listening to speakers and coaches.

What to Expect--A Contemplative Retreat

  • A 24-hour Retreat
  • Lodging and food provided, free of charge
  • Cabin accommodations with shared bathrooms
  • A simple and clear curriculum of guided discussions, introspection exercises using poetry, scripture and individual journaling time
  • A safe and nurturing environment to freely assess and express your thoughts and feelings
