What is a spiritual practices retreat? This is a time to take a break from the frenetic pace of life and overwhelming responsibilities. There is nothing expected of you on this retreat; simply come prepared to rest.

Spiritual Director Christian Swails will provide guidance regarding resting well, but this is a space where you can remember how to BE a human BEing, not a human doing. Consider this an invitation to pause from being a human doing and learn some practices that will help you continue to rest in your normal, every-day life.

No, you are welcome to arrive in the morning and leave in the evenings to spend the night in your own home. (But staying overnight is magical and adds to the retreat experience.)

There is a suggested donation of $100 for the entire weekend retreat, but if this may be a hindrance for you, please reach out. Scholarships are available.

No, childcare is not available for this event. In the future, as we continue to host retreats, we plan to make childcare available, but we do not currently have the capacity to provide childcare.
