Directed Retreats

Silented Directed Retreat

Silent Directed Retreats are ideal for anyone who could use a little quiet time away from over-stimulation to return to the center, to learn the art of deep listening, to recover a sense of wonder and gratitude for life, and to fall in love again with living.

If you desire deepening and renewal, a week-long foray into the silence may be just the balm for you. Silent directed retreats (offered in June and July) provide lavish time and sacred space for prayer, solitude, quiet and peace. In the beauty of 70 acres of prairie and woodland, you will be held by the beauty of creation. Each day you will meet with a spiritual director who will listen with you for the movement  of God within your life. A daily experience of centering prayer is available. As you rest in silence, you may notice many of life's gifts, regain a sense of balance, learn to be still, to live in the moment, and deepen your relationship with God and others.
