Spiritual Spa Day for Women: Celebrate the Wonder of Simplicity, at San Damiano Retreat, 710 Highland Drive, Danville, with Kathy Miranda and Rena Grant.

Prayer, body movement, small group discussion, creative response and quiet time will be offered to provide a way to do this. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the program goes from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Cost is $70 and includes lunch. Dial 925-837-9141, ext. 315, or register online at www.sandamiano.org.
