Dates: April 8, 2013 – April 13, 2013 Price: $325.00

Ghost Ranch has a long tradition of supporting those in ministry with rich respite and continuing education. In 2013, we will dedicate two special weeks to helping support those in all fields of ministry (ordained and lay).

Arrival (Monday afternoon) and Departure (Saturday morning) have been established so that those in ministry can leave/return in time for their weekly Worship responsibilities. Some segments will involve the full group (plenaries – processing – Worship). Participants will also choose one focus class where they will receive approximately 20 hours of instruction/ experience to help them in their field of ministry. Come and receive a week of nourishment to help you so you in turn can help others.

This retreat will use different modes of contemplative prayer as a way of allowing participants to explore their own deepest connection with the holy. Each day we will spend time with a different method of prayer such as lectio divina, praying with icons, walking meditation at the labyrinth, use of the Jesus Prayer, breath and centering prayer and so on. Afternoons will be free times for personal retreat, hiking, spiritual direction and more. Evenings will provide time for group reflection and processing.
