Listening Heart Retreat


October 2nd-5th, 2018


Encourage the nature of a listening heart

"And don't we all, with fierce hunger, crave a cave of solitude, a space of deep listening--full of quiet darkness and stars, until finally we hear a syllable of God echoing in the cave of our hearts." --Macrina Wiederkehr

This contemplative retreat invites us to step outside our normal lives and to reflect on where we have been, and where we might be going; to catch a glimpse of how we might live differently, and to listen for the still small-voice of God. Together we will nurture our desire for prayer. Contemplative prayer practices will be introduced. Opportunity is provided to meet with a spiritual director. Times of silence, including some meals, will occur. Rest will be honored...Renewal encouraged...Fellowship fostered.   

The cost of this retreat is  $250.  Arrival is Tuesday after 4pm and the retreat will conclude Friday after Lunch. The schedule can be found here.

This retreat is currently FULL.  To be placed on the wait list please contact Ellen Ratmeyer at
