Event Description

Prairiewoods invites you to experience the healing energy of silence and spiritual deepening for a week-long retreat in the comfort of your own home. As a retreatant, you will be encouraged to create your own sacred space at home for prayer and reflection ahead of time. To help you host the silence wherever you find yourself these days, we will begin the retreat together to pray and to offer resources for creating and holding sacred space, quieting the self and going deeper. We will gather together for an Opening Prayer via Zoom on Sunday, July 12, at 5:30 p.m. and conclude similarly (via Zoom) with a Closing Prayer on Saturday, July 18, at 11:30 a.m. Each day we will offer an opportunity for contemplative prayer as a group (via Zoom). A trained spiritual director/companion will be happy to talk with you over the phone or via Zoom once daily to enter more deeply into the heart of your spiritual journey. If you have never experienced a week of silence to focus on the movement of the Spirit within, this may be an opportunity for you to come to the quiet and enter deeply into the stillness. This retreat is facilitated by Rev. Rose Blank; Ann Jackson, PBVM; Kim Seward, BSN, RN; and Lucille Winnike, FSPA. The cost of this weeklong retreat is $230 and includes daily spiritual direction and Zoom prayer sessions. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at or 319-395-6700.
