Be Still and Know that I am God

26 October 2012 – 4 November 2012

October 26 – November 4

This contemplative retreat offers a time to deepen your spiritual journey in an atmosphere of prayerful silence. Spiritual practice (movement, chant, centering prayer) is offered each morning and each evening ends with community Vespers in the chapel. There’s an hour of individual spiritual direction each day and the community of retreatants comes together for meals in silence. This is an intentional silence – a practice of presence – that opens us to the Presence. “In an era in which people are reeling from busyness and a deluge of electronic information, silent retreats offer a path back to the natural rhythms of the body, mind and spirit. To stillness.” – Douglas Todd, The Sound of Silence in The Vancouver Sun

Friday, October 26, 5 pm – Sunday, November 4, 1 pm
