This retreat is now full.  Please email us if you would like to be added to the waiting list.

Theme: Awakening to Love’s Promptings

Love calls us to gratitude, relinquishment, celebration, service, play, praise, companionship, intimacy, communion, and always to deeper yearning. In other words, love calls us to love (Gerald G. May, The Awakened Heart). As we open ourselves to the gift of spacious silence, simplicity, and creative reflection in the heart of prayerful community and natural wonder, how might we see our life story thus far and still unfolding through the lens of Divine Love? How might we tend our deepest longings to wondrous expression? The invitation of our retreat is to offer our being and becoming in Love’s Presence.

Leader: Trish Stefanik is a Dayspring resident, experienced retreat leader, and on staff with the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation. She delights in opening a way for creativity and contemplation.

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 reflections with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends after breakfast Sunday morning with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.

You must be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus in order to attend weekend retreats.

The cost for weekend retreats is $275.  A $125 deposit is required to register.
