Enlightening Retreat

July 17-19, 2020



Enlightening retreats are for people who are committed to contemplative activism and long for more teaching to nourish their soul.

Retreatants gather for a combination of lecture, group reflection and contemplative prayer.

Enlightening retreats expand consciousness and invigorate participants to continue a life of contemplative activism.

Arrival and Departure Information

The retreat begins Friday with dinner at 6:15pm followed by an opening session. Please click here to see our retreat schedule.

The Benedictine Retreat Center in Schuyler, NE is about an hour and a half drive from Omaha. If you are flying in/out of Omaha, you’ll need to schedule your arrival by 3:00pm on Friday and departure for after 3:00pm on Sunday. Retreatants are invited to enjoy a reception at Chris and Phileena Heuertz home Sunday afternoon before you return to your home.

Many retreatants coming in from out of town rent a car. A couple weeks out, we will be in touch regarding transportation options for those who may need a ride. If you are driving and are willing to help carpool, please let us know.

We look forward to sharing sacred space with you.
