Individually Guided Retreats
It is a gentle four or six day time of reflection on scripture and prayer. Participants meet with their guide each day to share their reflection on scripture and how it relates to their life. No expertise is needed… just a desire to deepen one’s inner life. It is important to point out that a Individually Guided Retreat is not counseling nor a scripture study group.
