8-DAY DIRECTED RETREAT Aug 6–13

Directors: Chris Machado SSS, Pat Nelson CSJ, Ingrid Honore-Lallande CSJ, Sharon Becker CSJO, Linda Snow, CSJ Sunday, August 6, 2017 • 5:00 pm-Sunday, August 13, 2017 • 1:00 pm God invites and inspires individuals to come aside to a secluded place and rest awhile (Mk 6:30-32). A Directed Retreat is a time to set aside the normal occupations and preoccupations of daily life, and take the time to grow quiet, to center and to listen for God in all the ways God may speak. In daily meetings with the retreatant, a spiritual companion listens to and encourages retreatants to give voice to their experience in prayer and to come to a deeper perception and understanding of that experience. One needs to have experience in prayer, the ability to enter into silence and enough openness and trust to share these experiences with their director. Prerequisite: previous experience of a silent retreat Massage Therapy will be available. Fee: $550.00, all rooms private $50.00 non-refundable deposit required with registration by July 6, 2017. Early registration is recommended, as space is limited. Contact: Pat Nelson, CSJ at (818) 815-4480
