Discerning Call: Listening to the Land, Listening to Our Bodies – A Weekend Retreat

September 29, 2023 - October 1, 2023

Theme: Discerning Call: Listening to the Land, Listening to Our Bodies

Dayspring is bathed in the prayers of our ancestors who blessed the land and were blessed by it. This retreat will offer a time of deepening connections in the Great Silence – listening to the Creator, to the sacred land and to our own bodies. Slowing our very breathing and tending all our senses, we will hold open our questions to the living presence of Wisdom in all living beings. Together in hope, we will seek clarity and next steps for co-creating in the Great Unfolding: Love incarnated in the natural world.

Leader: Ann Dean is a spiritual director, member of the Dayspring Retreat Mission Group and faculty member at the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation.

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.

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