Event Description

Join us for a week of sacred space, silence, solitude, rest and prayer. Steeped in the love of all of creation on 70 acres of prairie and woodland, deepen awareness of life’s gifts; restore balance; live in the moment; and nurture relationships with Creator, Earth, self and others. Each day affords opportunities for healthy meals, quiet personal reflection and an hour-long session with a spiritual director. An optional centering prayer session closes each day. Body modalities, such as massage, healing touch and reflexology, may be available for an additional cost. Silent directed retreats are ideal for anyone who desires quiet time away to return to one’s center, to learn the art of deep listening, to recover a sense of wonder and gratitude for life, and to fall in love again with all of creation. This retreat is offered at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) June 19–25 and July 24–30 and is facilitated by Rose Blank; Ann Jackson, PBVM; and Lucille Winnike, FSPA. The cost is $495 and includes spiritual direction, lodging and all meals. (Lodgers only, please.) A non-refundable deposit of $25 is required at registration. (Full payment is required to register online. If you prefer to pay the $25 registration fee now and the balance when you arrive, please call 319-395-6700.) If you want to stay in a Hermitage, you also will need to register by phone.
