Consider coming to Siena Retreat Center for some private retreat time in combination with your retreat.  You can stay overnight and access the retreat on Saturday; Wi-Fi is available throughout the building.  You must bring your own laptop or other device to access the retreat.

During your free time, you can express your artistic side in the Creativity Room, walk the outdoor labyrinth, sit by the lake, wander the trails, or meet with a spiritual guide (for an additional fee; must be arranged in advance).  The cost depends on number of overnights and meals.  You can choose to have meals prepared by the Siena staff or bring your own.
