Listen: Silence Speaks
March 27 @ 6:00 pm - March 30 @ 12:00 pm
A silent retreat designed to provide space, resources, and content for enrichment, reenergizing, and renewal during the season of Lent. The art of listening will be experienced through a variety of exercises and resources including labyrinth walking, contemplative music, art meditation, silent meditation, group presentations, and reading for discernment. Experiencing silence in the midst of a urban setting is unique and very meaningful. This retreat will provide for each participant time for introspection and prayer, and time to gain strength and direction to continue the spiritual journey.
