Spring Deepening Retreat | Schuyler, Nebraska

Deepening retreats are designed for people who are acquainted with the history and methodology of contemplative spirituality, have a daily prayer sit practice (like centering prayer) and who desire to deepen their practice. Though people who are new to a sitting practice are also very welcome and will find the retreat helpful.

Retreatants gather together for approximately 8, 20-minute silent prayer sits and 3 yoga sessions. Sits are separated by a meditative walk, healthy meals, yoga practice, prayer with the monks, and solitude for personal rest and reflection.

Deepening retreats give participants the opportunity to exercise significant amounts of solitude, silence and stillness within a supportive community; bringing more integration to the contemplative and active dimensions of life and faith.

Retreatants leave Deepening retreats rooted in their spirituality and able to draw from a deeper well as they engage their active life.

We look forward to sharing sacred space with you.

Mindful Silence Half Day Retreat | Chicago, Illinois

MINDFUL SILENCE:

THE HEART OF CHRISTIAN CONTEMPLATION

 

 

SATURDAY HALF DAY RETREAT

La Salle Street Church

Chicago, Illinois


 

Mindful Silence really couldn’t be more timely. In some ways our society is spinning out of control. People are unhinged from the center and ground of being. This makes them ripe for the graces found in contemplative spirituality. On the other hand, secular mindfulness is answering the anxious minds of many. But people of faith long for more. They want to link their meditation practice with their faith tradition. This is where Mindful Silence comes in. It helps Christians in particular, but seekers from all walks of life in general, to connect the needs of their body, mind, and heart with a wellspring of spiritual depth found in the Christian contemplative tradition.

Mindful Silence is rich with themes of the spiritual journey like “Discovering Darkness is Light,” Finding Liberation by Discernment,” and “Unknowing to Know.” Each chapter introduces the reader to a trusted teacher in the Christian contemplative tradition as well as historic prayer practice.

Grounding Retreat | Farmington, Minnesota

This is a private Grounding Retreat for the Upper Room faith community.

Grounding retreats are helpful for people who are new to contemplative spirituality. But whether you are a beginner or have been on the contemplative path for a long while, this retreat will root your soul more deeply in the ground of being. Experienced contemplatives know that we always remain a beginner in the unfolding path of reality.

Drawing from the Christian contemplative tradition, retreatants explore history, methodology and practice, have the opportunity to debrief experiences of contemplative prayer, and discover implications for daily life and faith.

Retreatants leave Grounding retreats more centered and grounded in their identity, with a deeper understanding for how to integrate their inner life of contemplation with their outer life of activity.
