SERVICES

RETREATS

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

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

These spiritual exercises are an experience of daily prayer that draw you step by step into the very heart of God. This ancient and proven process is designed to deepen your personal relationship with the Trinity in such a way that an intimate friendship is formed.

Speaking &
Facilitation

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.

Attached to God: An Event for Practitioners

A continuing education event with author & therapist Krispin Mayfield, for spiritual directors, counselors, pastors, & leaders.
 

Why is it that God often feels so far away? There’s a good chance the reason and the solution have to do with our attachment style. This one-day educational event is especially geared for spiritual directors, counselors/therapists, pastors/leaders, and anyone intrigued with the integration of attachment, neuroscience, and the spiritual life. Author and therapist Krispin Mayfield will spend the day with us unpacking how our learned attachment style effects all our relationships, including our relationship with God, and how we can help others heal through a loving and secure attachment to God.

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.

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.

Many people have dreams but don’t know whether their dreams are from God or for them to steward. In Starting Something New, you will discover the process of discerning and birthing a God-given dream, as you learn about the stories of fifteen dreams, including Fall Creek Abby, as they were realized.
