Be Still and Know that I am God silent retreats provide time and place to rest, to be in nature and to deepen your spiritual journey—all in an atmosphere of prayer-filled silence. This is an intentional silence that helps persons on retreat encounter that still, quiet, healing place within, where there can be openness to the movement of the Spirit. A time of individual spiritual direction is offered each day and the community of retreatants come together for meals in silence and participatory worship. This retreat is a great opportunity for first time participants to explore and experience Silence as well as an annual renewal for those already familiar with silent retreat.

The Jubilee Programs offer practical learning in spiritual growth, soul development and the art of spiritual direction. We explore the contemplative life through spiritual practices including the enneagram, integration of head/heart/body, silent retreats, “holy listening” in journey groups and contemplative prayer and meditation.
