If a personal retreat is new for you, you might consider a guided retreat. One week during Lent and Advent we host half day and full day retreats with a communal lunch at noon. You will be assigned a private room and provided a written retreat guide to use for your time.


Thomas Kelley writes, "Deep within us all 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 sanctuary of the soul is often most readily discovered during extended times of silence.

Fall Creek Abbey will host a Silent Retreat on the following dates: 

  • Thursday, January 2-Saturday, January 4, 2020

  • Thursday, June 25-Saturday, June 27, 2020

The retreat begins with dinner and an introduction at 6:00 pm on Thursday evening and concludes at 1:00 pm on Saturday with lunch and sharing. All meals are included. The cost for a silent retreat is $180. Please contact us for more information.

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.
