Silented Directed Retreat

Silent Directed Retreats are ideal for anyone who could use a little quiet time away from over-stimulation to return to the center, to learn the art of deep listening, to recover a sense of wonder and gratitude for life, and to fall in love again with living.

A Retreat to the Center – Journey to your center during this week of retreat. These simple, unstructured days offer the opportunity for morning and evening prayer and ritual, including Centering Prayer. Participants are invited to creat a retreat experience for themselves by making use of the art supplies in the Creativity Room; walking the grounds, lakeshore and labyrinth; participating in liturgies and service of the Racine Dominicans sisters; making time for personal reflection or prayer; journaling; scheduling a massage; or simply resting. This retreat is a time to tend your soul and listen to the voice inside.
