Silent Directed Retreat II

“Whenever emptiness- what seems like empty space, absence of sound- becomes its own kind of fullness with its own kind of sweet voice, you have just experienced what I mean by silence.”

- Richard Rohr in Silent Compassion

This retreat provides an opportunity to meet daily with one’s spiritual director and to share in the Eucharistic liturgy and common evening prayer.  Solitude, nature, and silence enhance these sacred days.

The retreat begins at 3:30pm on Sunday and concludes with the noon meal on Saturday.
Cost of $495 includes $50 non-refundable deposit, spiritual direction, overnight accommodations, and meals.
