Wellstreams Seven-Day Silent Directed Retreat
Come away to a sacred space where all are invited to experience the presence of God through prayer, silence and solitude. Other than an opening ritual, this retreat offers contemplative spaciousness where the daily rhythm consists of meals together in a silent atmosphere and spiritual direction sessions to share and explore the invitation of Spirit.
The Wellstreams Program fosters discernment and provides education for those who feel called to the practice of spiritual direction. This two-phase, 3-year certificate program offers participants a balanced combination of academic, experiential, and practical learning while finding common ground through deep community.
