Silent Retreat from 10.10.24–10.14.24 Registration Now Open!

We spend most of our lives pursuing happiness, chasing one thing after another, worrying about the past and being anxious about the future. Meanwhile, the world around us is overflowing with the very wonders and happiness in which we seek. This beauty calls to us every day, yet we are rarely ever in the position to listen. If we don’t have silence in ourselves, if our minds and our bodies are full of noise, we cannot hear beauty’s call.

During this 5-day Silent Retreat, we will practice the Art of Noble Silence to cultivate the calm within ourselves and experience the profound power of quiet amid our noisy everyday lives.
