This in person retreat is the perfect place for those new to Centering Prayer and silent retreats to begin, as well as for experienced practitioners to have a chance to sit with others and experience a weekend of silence and rest.

Zoom: Zentangle

With Monika Ellis, OSB

November 7 - 28, 2023
Zentangle - not what it sounds like!  Neither of the Zen tradition, nor about getting tangled up.  It is a method of drawing that uses small, deliberate strokes of a black pen on white paper. The images that come from Zentangle are stunning.  The experience is focused and fun.  You will not believe the beauty that comes from your hand when creating in the Zentangle method.  Sister Monika is a Certified Zentangle Teacher who wishes to spread the joy and the benefits of this simple way of making images. Take one session or get a price break on all four!

Zoom: Poetry of Doubt and Faith

With Shemaiah Gonzalez

Spend three luscious hours reading and discussing 20th and 21st century poetry and how these words can hold us as we struggle with faith and doubt.
