Fall Creek Abbey is an urban retreat house in Indianapolis thoughtfully designed for those seeking to reconnect their hearts with the heart of God. We welcome those desiring personal retreat space for half day, full day or overnight retreats.


Spiritual direction is a ministry of listening for God’s presence and involvement in the life of another. We pursue this by offering spiritual direction for individuals and groups, training spiritual directors, and supporting spiritual directors in their ongoing supervision and development.

Ignatian Exercises & Guide Training

The spiritual exercises are an experience of daily prayer that draw you into the very heart of God. This ancient and proven process is designed to deepen your intimate friendship with the Trinity. Fall Creek Abbey offers this journey through the 19th Annotation of the Exercises (a nine-month process), and to receive training to become an Ignatian Guide (a year-long process for those who are already trained spiritual directors).

Speaking &

Beth and David have broad experience speaking to small and large groups, as well as facilitating retreats. Being gifted story-tellers, their approach is warm, creative, heart-oriented and accessible.



When someone walks through the doors into Fall Creek Abbey, it’s not uncommon for them to pause and want to name what they’re feeling: the sensation of peace, quiet, welcome and simple beauty. Many who come are seeking a sanctuary where they will be undisturbed, yet lovingly supported; a place of rest and solitude, as well as rich conversation; a private setting where they can be anonymous and not responsible for anyone but themselves.

Wisdom for Old Souls is an invitation to engage in a three-way dialogue between the human author of Ecclesiastes, God—the Eternal One, and you. Borrowing from the Ignatian tradition and its regard for the imagination, this series of reflections is as tender and gentle as they are unsettling and provocative. They invite old souls, whether young or not-so-young, to read the sacred text in a Jacob-like-spirit as a wrestler—and engage with God in a more real, robust, and honest way.

Prayers at Twilight is a collection of liturgies that foster the contemplative spirit—a way of seeing all of life as a place to encounter God. The book is organized around seven values, one for each day of the week, and is an invitation to pray with the hope that each individual who picks up this book would receive the gift of contemplative vision.

When Faith Becomes Sight addresses two central questions of Christian faith: "How can I recognize God's presence in my life?" and "How can I respond faithfully to God's involvement with me?" This book describes what to look for, what lens to look through, and how to look within to discover God’s overtures of love and Self-revelation.
