In the Stillness: Dance – A Silent Retreat: An Initiative of Contemplative Pathways

June 8 – June 11, 2021 Tues 2:00 PM – Fri 1:00 PM

Are you longing for a break from the demands of a busy life, or a change of routine that invites slowing down and gentle reflection?

Would it sound appealing to spend a few days in a beautiful setting, enjoy being cared for and supported, while letting silence restore your rhythm and perspective?

This retreat offers “Sabbath time,” a change from the daily pace of everyday, with a supportive environment for you to enter the silence, to journal, walk and rest, and simply BE.
