So often we rush headlong through our days, our weeks, our lives, missing out on the real moments, those places where the spark of the Divine is so close we could almost touch it — if only we’d been paying attention. We tell ourselves we don’t have time, but the truth is we don’t need more time but rather more presence. When we seek beauty right where we are, we discover God in our midst, in the ordinary events and mundane moments of our lives.

The Divine is not a distant dream but a daily reality. Join writer and retreat leader Mary DeTurris Poust for a weekend focused on this beautiful truth and how to let it unfold in your life day by day. This retreat will include not only formal presentations but guided meditation, optional yoga classes, journaling, poetry, collage as prayer, and small doses of silence to soothe the soul. Come away for a short time to restore your serenity, recharge your energy, and recognize God alongside you every step of the way.

Check in begins at 4pm and the retreat will begin after dinner. Lunch is included on Sunday before departure.

Mary DeTurris Poust is a writer, retreat leader, spiritual director, and yoga teacher. The author of six books on Catholic spirituality and six books of seasonal reflections, Mary writes about the spiritual journey in her monthly column, Life Lines, and hosts a podcast by the same name.
