Led by Ward Bauman

If you have been practicing Christian contemplative prayer and/or attended our Wisdom Schools in the past, take some time to discern whether or not this is the year to attend our Kenosis retreat. This silent meditation intensive represents our central ministry in spiritual formation. It is designed for those who feel called to take further steps into the fullness of God through deeper prayer and honest reflection. Kenosis is truly an opportunity for transformation. This work is based on Jesus’ own pattern of life and practical teaching: “if anyone wants to be my disciple, they must first be willing to deny their own selves. . .” Central and foundational to all other Christian practices are the prayer forms that lead to self-emptying (kenosis). Ask yourself if God is calling you to this deeper work. If you have questions about preparation for this rereat, contact Ward Bauman at

Cost: $640
