Event Description

Advent is a time for that sweet hush that blankets Earth with clear, starry nights and cleansing, peaceful snowfall. It calls for waiting with joyful hope, savoring the gentleness of quiet and solitude to refresh the soul, to calm the mind and to comfort the weary spirit in times of sadness and affliction. New life is emerging from the depths! Come to Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) for a weekend of silence and serenity to seek out the light that is dawning. Spend the silence in any way you wish! Prairiewoods will welcome you into the weekend’s cocooning space, where you will meet your own heart’s rhythms once again and rediscover the deep joy of simply being. Once daily you will have the opportunity to meet for conversation with a spiritual companion to share the joys and sorrows of your inner journey. Lavish time and space for reflection during the day will meet nights of restful slumber where your dreams will come alive with imagination and creative flow. Let yourself be led into soulful days and hushabye nights, and feel yourself transformed by the peace beyond all knowing! The cost is $230 and includes sessions, lodging and all meals. The commuter fee is $180 and includes sessions, Saturday lunch and dinner, and Sunday lunch. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at or 319-395-6700.
