7-Day Silent Intensive & Post-Intensive Retreats

February 21, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - February 27, 2022 @ 11:00 am


Come, rest in the stillness with contemplative companions, away from the busyness of daily life.

Expansive views of the Willamette Valley, walking the stations of the cross on the park-like grounds, opportunities to pray with the monks, or simply soaking in the silence, will enhance your Centering Prayer practice whether you are coming for the first time (Intensive Retreat) or returning (Post-Intensive). Intensive retreatants will watch Fr. Keating’s Spiritual Journey videos, while those on the Post-Intensive track have an extra prayer period and no videos.

The retreat is designed to deepen your established practice. Grand Silence (no eye contact) will be observed throughout, including at meals, except for opening and closing programs. Discussion after videos for the Intensive track is optional.

Registration fee includes 6 nights in a private room with private bath and delicious meals by Bon Appetit, who will attempt to honor special diets. Elevators and one ADA room available.

Pre-requisites: daily Centering Prayer practice for six months; fully vaccinated for Covid with booster at least 2 wks prior. The guesthouse is in compliance with State of Oregon Covid-19 prevention recommendations regarding face masks, social distancing, and air filtration.

Deposit of $100 due at the time of registration ($50 is non-refundable)
Balance due by January 15, 2022
