April 27 - April 29, 2018
Theme: ROOTED IN LOVE. Paul likened life in Christ to "being rooted in love" (Ephesians 3:17). The roots of our being extend deeply into the rich soil of Love. On this retreat we will explore our ever-nourishing connection to the living God whose Presence anchors and feeds our growth in Love.
Leader: Robert S. (Robin) Seiler, Jr. completed the Shalem Institute's program in leadership of contemplative prayer groups and retreats. He is a psychotherapist in private practice in Greenbelt, MD.
Weekend retreats run Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. The silence begins Friday night after dinner when the leader opens the retreat and introduces the theme. The leader usually offers brief meditations with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends late-morning Sunday with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.
The cost for weekend retreats is $220. To reserve a space, please send a $110 deposit with an application you can print from the application page, or pay on line by going to the application page and clicking on payment options.
Dinner on Friday at 7 pm is the first official gathering. You are welcome to arrive and settle in any time after 4 pm on Friday. The retreat will end by 2 pm on Sunday. It is important that you come on a weekend when you can stay for the whole retreat.
