Graceful Renewal in Community:  A Silent Spring Retreat


Starts: 11 am at Friday Mar 30

Ends: 12 pm at Sunday April 1

The beginning of Spring comes with the smell of new life and brings with it new energy. But how do we transition into it with grace? How do we honor who we’ve been and the winter that has made it possible for us to journey inward?

Join ARC for a 3 day, 2 night silent retreat over Easter/Passover weekend to explore these questions in the context of your own journey.

What is Graceful Renewal in Community? 
Graceful Renewal in Community will be a silent retreat where talking is only taken during meal times* or minimally during designated activities. Participants are encouraged not to participate in every activity, and rather to select the activities that will most support their growth and spiritual needs. 

This retreat is appropriate for any individual that has a desire to invite the space for intentional silence into their lives. Some will choose to take absolute silence without books, internet, etc and others may solely choose not to speak.

What makes this different than other silent retreats? 
The feeling of community. The idea of this retreat is to see and let yourself be seen through the beauty and discomfort of your unfolding while having the opportunity to reflect on your contemplations over meals.*

*There will be an option for a silent table during meals for those who would prefer it.
