If a personal retreat is new for you, you might consider a guided retreat at Fall Creek Abbey. During Lent and Advent, we host morning and afternoon half day retreats with a joint lunch at noon. You will be provided a private room and written retreat guide to use for your 4 1/2 hour retreat.

Thomas Kelley writes, "Deep within us there is an amazing inner sanctuary of the soul, a holy space, a Divine Center, a speaking Voice, to which we may continuously return." This inner sanctuary is what we hope you will discover and inhabit during your silent retreat at Fall Creek Abbey.
We have upcoming silent retreats on June 24-26, 2023, meals included. For 40 hours we will maintain a discipline of silence except during times of corporate prayer. All meals and snacks are provided. The cost is $250.
Your hosts will be Ben and Deb Sternke.

I have enjoyed many offerings from The Fall Creek Abbey portfolio. During a season of transition, I attended the Direction 4 Life Work program offered by Dave Booram. That experience gave me an appetite for growth through Spiritual Direction, which eventually led me to complete the two year Spiritual Direction training program. The transformational impact of the Spiritual Direction training continues to inform and bear fruit in my spiritual life. I have also enjoyed the Advent Retreat and Lent Retreat, both of which offered beautiful. set aside times of reflection. Most recently, I attended a Silent Retreat at The Abbey that reminded me of the restorative impact of silence. The hospitality offered by Beth & Dave Booram at The Fall Creek Abbey is unique and I recommend their space and portfolio without reservation.
Melodie, holding hope that the best is yet to be
