Come share in the rhythms of this remote Village that has been a Lutheran retreat center for over fifty years. All are welcome!

The retreat will be facilitated by Linda , a Certified Clinical Musician, ordained minister, and Expressive Arts educator, assisted by Hospice professionals and other invited presenters and Holden staff. Linda has founded two Threshold Choirs ( whose purpose is to sing at the bedside of those who are dying. She currently lives and works at Holden Village.
