Cultivating Inner Stillness: A Guided Silent Retreat


with Rick McCorrister

Rick McCorristerThis will be a time to explore inner stillness and all that is has to teach us for our journey. We will begin Sunday evening with an orientation to the retreat time: what to expect, how will the days flow, time for check-in each day, any questions or concerns about how to be in silence. We will end our time with a prayer/worship time for entering the stillness.

Monday to Wednesday we will be in silence. We will have a prayer time each morning and evening to give structure to our day. In addition there will be opportunity each day for each participant to meet with Rick for a spiritual check-in time (or spiritual direction session). Meals will also be in silence.

Thursday morning we will use our Morning Prayer time as our coming out of silence ritual. The rest of the morning will be a time to debrief the experience of practicing inner stillness. We will also spend time reflecting on the transition from this time of silent retreat into our regular lives beyond Sorrento. We will conclude with lunch together.

Sunday Nov. 18 – Thursday Nov. 22. Starting Sunday at 5:30pm with supper; and ending Thursday at 1pm after lunch.
