Retreats

We invite you to join us for one retreat or consider creating an ongoing rhythm of solitude retreats.   We will prepare the space so you can just come and be with God, the only One who can show you how to live freely and lightly.

DESCRIPTION OF A TYPICAL RETREAT DAY

During each retreat day, we will gather at the beginning of our time to prepare our hearts for what God might have for us and to explain several guided solitude options.   You can decide to follow the guided solitude options or follow your own promptings from God.  We will come back together at the end of the day for conversation about your experience.  Lunch, snacks, beverages and optional experience materials will be provided.  Optional spiritual direction sessions will also be available.

RETREAT SCHEDULE

All retreats are day-long experiences beginning at 8:30am and ending at 4:30pm. Registration will begin at 8am.
