Sharing Silence. This retreat is for anyone who longs for uninterrupted silence. Together we will rest in the spacious stillness of retreat, opening to what is given. We will listen for the Spirit through the gathered community, the land and the silence. After an introduction to silent retreat on Friday, we will share uninterrupted silence until Sunday morning.
Leader: Nat Reid is an experienced retreat leader and the director of Dayspring Retreat Center. He has been involved with the Church of the Saviour and its ministries for over 20 years.
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 $235. To reserve a space, please send a $100 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 between 3:30 and 6:30 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.
