Invite yourself into a week of sacred space, solitude, rest, peace and prayer. Tap the love of all of creation amid the deep silence of 70 acres of prairie and woodland at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha). Deepen your awareness of life’s gifts. Regain a sense of balance. Learn to be still to live in the moment and to deepen your relationship with God, with yourself, with others and with Earth. Each day affords opportunity for healthy meals, lots of quiet personal reflection and an hour-long session with a spiritual director, who will help you sense and cite the movement of the Spirit in your life. An optional centering prayer session closes each day. Holistic services, such as massage, healing touch and reflexology, are available for an additional cost. Silent Directed Retreats are ideal for anyone who desires quiet time away from over-stimulation to return to one’s 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 all of creation. This weeklong retreat (offered both June 9–15 and July 7–13) is facilitated by Betty Daugherty, FSPA; Ann Jackson, PBVM; Lucille Winnike, FSPA; and guest spiritual directors. The cost of this weeklong retreat is $425 and includes spiritual direction, lodging and all meals. (Lodgers only, please.)
