December 11 - December 13, 2015
Theme: SHARING SILENCE. After an introduction to silent retreat, we will enter the silence and winter stillness for the weekend, without further gatherings for meditations or prayer times. We will gather to share out of the silence and worship together Sunday morning.
Leader: Nat Reid has been the director of Dayspring Retreat Center for 11 years, and has led many retreats.
Weekend retreats run Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. The silence begins Friday night after dinner when the leader opens the retreat and introduces the theme. The leader usually offers brief meditations with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends late-morning Sunday with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.
The cost for weekend retreats is $220. To reserve a space, please send a $110 deposit with an application you can print from the application page, or pay on line by going to the application page and clicking on payment options.
Dinner on Friday at 7 pm is the first official gathering. You are welcome to arrive and settle in between 3:30 and 6:30 pm on Friday. The retreat will end by 2 pm on Sunday. It is important that you come on a weekend when you can stay for the whole retreat.
