Individually Directed Retreat

Individually Directed Retreat

Individually Directed Retreat

Friday-Sunday, June 2-4, 2017

Our God of love so desires to meet with you in the quiet of your heart. Carve out time to come aside and be still, to let your soul settle into the silence, to be intimately present to yourself and to God.

A trained spiritual guide will meet with you twice during the silence and solitude of your retreat to help you listen for the movement of God in your prayer and life journey.

Your spiritual guide can introduce you to ways of prayer and suggest scriptural or other prayer content, and you are welcome to bring your contemplative crafts and journal.

We will meet as a group once on our first evening for an introduction to the retreat.

  • Arrivals and registration: 2-4 pm on the first day; ends 4 pm on the last day after a short prayer service.
  • Fee $240; deposit $50.
  • Registration deadline: May 26, 2017
  • Limited enrollment.

  • INDIVIDUALLY DIRECTED RETREATS (IDRs) are 3-day retreats (either Tuesday-Thursday or Friday - Sunday). Several IDRs are held by SSJD at specific times of the year as part of the Food for the Soul retreat offerings. IDRs are open to a small group of people and feature individual spiritual direction, as detailed above.
  • PERSONAL RETREATS can be scheduled by one person at a time any time, and may be quiet time, or with spiritual direction, or as a design-your-own program of various lengths of time: see here http://ssjd.ca/retreats-personal.html
