Resting in the Sacredness of Life – A Weekend Retreat

February 9 - February 11

Theme: Resting in the Sacredness of Life

In the heart of winter we are invited to deep rest and deep heart knowing. We are invited to sit at the hearth of creation and our created being and listen to what our soul already knows: All life is sacred. We are called to remember. For the ancient Celts, the human and divine, time and eternity, nature and grace are profoundly interwoven. May sacred awareness help us engage our lives, our relationships with each other and the earth, and our work with new appreciation and imagination.

Leader: Trish Stefanik is a Dayspring resident and experienced retreat leader who 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.

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

We serve family-style, homemade vegetarian food which includes eggs and dairy. If you have any allergies or medically advised dietary restrictions, please let us know, and we will accommodate your needs if we can.

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.  Please plan to stay for the entire retreat.
