Listening with the Eyes of the Heart

“It is confirmation to me that beyond the material world of cause and effect, there is a dimension of spirit waiting for our recognition. We see such a small piece of all the wonder surrounding us.”

- Paula D'Arcy

When the Divine breaks through into our everyday lives, it's the beginning of a deeper journey.  Now we look and listen with a new and growing sense of all that's beautiful and all that's possible.  In the words of poet Jennifer Lynn Woodruff, “If we cannot be faithful in the hours between the joy and underneath the pain...we will miss grace which comes so soft and slow…”

After the opening meal, this will be a silent retreat.  Throughout the weekend, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the conferences, but all other times, including meals, will be silent.  Silence gives us inner space to listen to the voice of the Divine, to the voice inside our heart.  Retreat participants will have the opportunity to walk along the lake shore and the outdoor labyrinth on the grounds.

Thursday, April 25, to Sunday, April 28, 2019
The retreat begins with the evening meal Thursday and concludes with the noon meal on Sunday.
Cost of $295 includes $50 non-refundable deposit, overnight accommodations, and meals.

Paula D’Arcy, author and international retreat leader, is the Founder and President of the Red Bird Foundation, which supports the growth and spiritual development of all who want to live with a more open heart, including those in limited circumstances such as individuals in prison or those in great need.  Paula is a former psychotherapist whose personal tragedy led her to reach out to others.  Through her retreats and publications, she is a beacon of hope as we encounter challenges and grief throughout our life.
