Spring Sacred Seed Retreat ~ A Contemplative Journey into Creation (Online and In Person)
- Friday 04/28/2023 - Sunday 04/30/2023
- 6:30pm - 8:00pm EST
Join us for our Spring Sacred Seed Retreat ~ A Contemplative Journey into Creation beginning April 28. This soul-soothing retreat will help unearth guidance from nature to enable you to gently quiet everyday distractions and access deep spiritual tranquility. Dominican Center, in collaboration with Plainsong Farm, invites you to let your senses be revitalized by nature. Take part in an experience that will cultivate your ability to become silent and still, as you deeply listen and rest in God's presence.
Silence is God's first language.
~ John of the Cross
While you nurture and attend your inner garden it is our hope that you discover solitude in nature as a meaningful spiritual practice. In silence, we learn to listen — to ourselves and to God. In silence, we come to know ourselves and the reality of our lives more deeply. Allow prayerful silence to seed sacred spiritual growth for your journey.
The Sacred Seed Retreat is a personal silent retreat and is offered as a blended experience (online and in-person).
PLANT (Session I): FRIDAY / APRIL 28 / 6:30-8:00 pm
The focus of this guided gathering is to explore new seeds of possibility to emerge in your heart and life. Using Scripture and prayerful prompts, cultivate space in both your interior and exterior home to enhance quiet reflection. During this first session, you will briefly meet with your Retreat Spiritual Director who will prayerfully accompany you on your journey.
NURTURE IN NATURE (Session II): SATURDAY / APRIL 29
(in-person at Plainsong Farm in Rockford - COVID-19 safety guidelines in place)
