Encouraging the Nurture of a Listening Heart - 2018

October 2 - October 5, 2018

Arrive Tues 4pm - depart Fri after lunch, $250


"And don't we all, with fierce hunger, crave a cave of solitude, a space of deep listening--full of quiet darkness and stars, until finally we hear a syllable of God echoing in the cave of our hearts." --Macrina Wiederkehr

This contemplative retreat invites us to step outside our normal lives and to reflect on where we have been, and where we might be going; to catch a glimpse of how we might live differently, and to listen for the still small-voice of God. Together we will nurture our desire for prayer. Contemplative prayer practices will be introduced. Opportunity is provided to meet with a spiritual director. Times of silence, including some meals, will occur. Rest will be honored...Renewal encouraged...Fellowship fostered.
