“These are some of the things that prayer is. Prayer is rhythm. Prayer is comfort. Prayer is disappointment. Prayer is words and shape and art around desperation, and delight and disappointment and desire. Prayer can be the art that helps you name your desire.”

~ Padraig O Tuama

In this weekend retreat we will explore prayer practices that invite us to a new relationship with God, with ourselves, and with the people in our lives. Our time together will include conversation, silence, movement, and contemplation, all of which create an environment for deep listening and heartfelt response.

Activities will include body prayer, journaling, Lectio Divina, walking meditation, and other experiences that bring our bodies, minds, and spirits into the act of authentic prayer. Guided by Linda Mastro

There will be some periods of silence during the retreat. Check-in will begin at 4pm. There will be a brief welcome session at 5:30pm, followed by dinner at 6pm. The retreat will begin at 7pm on Friday. An optional Mass will be available after the retreat ends on Sunday. Lunch is not included before departure.
