July Silent Directed Retreat at Prairiewoods
- 5 p.m. -
- All Ages
Invite yourself into a week of sacred space, solitude, rest, peace and prayer. We will tap the love of all of creation amid the deep silence of 70 acres of prairie and woodland at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha). We will deepen our awareness of life’s gifts and regain a sense of balance. We will learn to be still, to live in the moment and to deepen your relationship with God, ourselves, others and Earth. Each day will afford us opportunity for healthy meals, lots of quiet personal reflection and an hour-long session with a spiritual director, who will help us sense and cite the movement of the Spirit in our lives. An optional centering prayer session closes each day. Holistic services, such as massage, healing touch and reflexology, are available for an additional cost. A Silent Directed Retreat is ideal for any of us who desire quiet time away from over-stimulation to return to our 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 weeklong retreat is facilitated by Betty Daugherty, FSPA; Ann Jackson, PBVM; Lucille Winnike, FSPA; and guest spiritual directors. The cost of this weeklong retreat is $425 and includes spiritual direction, lodging and all meals. (Lodgers only, please.)
