Retreat to the Center

“Sabbath is more than the absence of work…it is the presence of something that arises when we consecrate a period of time to listen to what is most deeply beautiful, nourishing, or true. ”

- Wayne Muller

Journey to your center during this week retreat.  These simple, unstructured days offer the opportunity for morning and evening prayer and ritual, including Centering Prayer.

Participants are invited to create a retreat experience for themselves by making use of the art supplies in the Creativity Room; walking the grounds, lakeshore, and labyrinth; participating in liturgies and services of the Racine Dominican sisters; making    time for personal reflection or prayer; journaling; scheduling   a massage; or simply resting. 

This retreat is a time to tend your soul and listen to the voice inside.

Sunday, June 2, to Friday, June 7, 2019
The retreat begins on Sunday at 3:30pm and concludes with the noon meal on Friday.
Cost of $405 includes $50 non-refundable deposit, overnight accommodations, and meals.
