This sequence of five retreats are designed to take people through a process of learning to live a contemplative life in the world. Starting with one’s true vocation as living in union with God and progressing through healing to living with others, each retreat includes teaching, prayer, spiritual direction, personal reflection, and group sharing. The retreats are listed below:
  1. Praying Monk Retreat
  2. Contemplative Presence Retreat
  3. Wounded Healer Retreat
  4. Wilderness Pilgrim Retreat
  5. Formational Leader Retreat
January 16-18, 2020
The Contemplative Presence Retreat will focus on what it means to be present to God and others. Through teaching, personal reflection, discussion, and practices, we will explore and experience presence. Rooted in looking at how Jesus was present, we will seek to follow Him in the way that He loved God and others.
