Busy Person’s Directed Retreat

It is a simple idea: over the course of two to four weeks (depending upon your preference), you make a commitment to yourself and to God for special time each day for prayer, reflection, and silence while keeping your ordinary day-to-day schedule. Three or four times during the course of the retreat you will meet with a spiritual director to reflect on your daily practice of prayer and the ways in which you are—or perhaps are not—noticing the presence of God in daily life. This is an excellent opportunity to get a “taste” of how spiritual direction might enrich your journey.

These retreats begin and end with all participants and directors gathered for community prayer and blessing. Typically offered to groups of 8–20 people for two, three, or four weeks, these retreats have been offered at area churches and seminaries since 1994.
