Slow Down...

Individual Conversations

Are you being invited to slow down and reflect on your life?

Committing to a regular practice of reflecting on the inner and outer movements of your life, 

with someone who has a trained ear, 

will help you become attuned to the rhythms of Grace.

Finding God Within

Silent Retreats

      "If you don't come apart for a while, you will come apart after a while."  ~Dallas Willard

We live in a noisy world that is in constant motion. Without being aware that we are doing it, we begin to rely on sound to fill a void within us and to distract us from pain. To be in right relationship with ourselves and others we must interrupt these patterns. To be in communion with all that has life, we must slow down and enter into the silence. Silent retreat opportunities are available throughout the year:
  • Seasonally I host a small group of individuals who are seeking an experience of Silence in community.
  • Personal silent retreats with or without spiritual direction.
  • Customized: You invite the group and reserve a retreat center. I will work with you to determine the group's needs, to suggest a structure and offer resources. I will then be on-site to facilitate and provide spiritual direction.

"Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you." ~Anne Lamott
