We need to recover an oasis of silence within the rhyme and reason of our active life, for it is in silence that we meet God face to face.--Max Picard
following an age-old tradition for contemporary pilgrims
with Lindsay McLaughlin and Mary Ann Welter
Gather at Rolling Ridge Study Retreat for Friday Vespers, followed by 7:00 pm dinner and Compline. Arrive Friday after 1:00 pm. Retreat ends following Terce/Closing Blessing at 10 am on Sunday. Participants will follow contemporary Prayer of the Hours, interspersed with generous time for silence and exploring the forest, streams, and byways of Rolling Ridge's 1400 acres of untouched natural beauty. Retreat includes five delicious home-style meals, a "spontaneous community" of gathered lovers of silence, space and opportunity for your own meditative art, reflections by Lindsay McLaughlin, and gentle guidance for contemplative seekers.
