The focus for this retreat will be Benedictine Spirituality as a pathway for spiritual growth. Participants will be encouraged to consider the possibility of living a more contemplative life so that the sacred nature of their daily work will be revealed to them. One doesn't have to be a monk to experience the silence, interiority and balance that are the hallmarks of a deeply spiritual life. Cost: $500.00. A $50.00 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit is required by October 17, the registration deadline. Lodging and meals are included.
