Retreat to the Center

“Don't wait to be ready. Everything you need for this journey is available to you right now. ”

- K. Bradford Brown

This retreat has been cancelled. If you are registered for this retreat, you will receive an e-mail.  We invite you to consider joining Centering Prayer which takes place via Zoom each Thursday from 7:00 - 8:00am.

Journey to your center during this week retreat.  These simple, unstructured days offer the opportunity for participants to create a retreat experience for themselves by making time for personal reflection and Centering Prayer; walking the grounds, lakeshore, and labyrinth; making use of the art supplies in the Creativity Room; participating in liturgies and services of the Racine Dominican sisters; journaling; scheduling a massage; or simply resting. 

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

Sunday, July 5, to Friday, July 10,  2020
The retreat begins on Sunday at 3:30pm and concludes with the noon meal on Friday.
Cost of $435 includes $50 non-refundable deposit, overnight accommodations, and meals.  Massage and reiki are not being offered for this year's retreat.
