This is a retreat to allow silence to still us. In doing so, we can listen attentively to our life’s myths, metaphors, meanings, and mysteries.
Then, with compassion and courage, we may embrace the ambiguities of imperfection. We may write, with more clarity and conviction, our soul stories of wholeness and holiness.
Interweaving Scripture, insights from various contemporary authors, and spiritualities, as well as options to write and share personal stories, this retreat will maintain a sacred space. Guided by Sr. Sara Dwyer.
This is a silent retreat. Check-in begins at 4pm and an orientation session will be held at 5pm. Please note that lunch is not included on Sunday before departure.
