A RETREAT GUIDE

for your time at a hermitage

WHO COMES TO A HERMITAGE?

  • Individuals who are in transition in their lives and discerning the next step in their journeys;
  • Those searching to deepen their faith life with extra quiet time.
  • Religious women and men, lay and ordained ministers, rabbis, people in healing professions, educators, writers and others who need time away from their very busy lives of service.
  • Persons who feel something is missing—or are experiencing emptiness—and want to explore ways to live a more caring and fulfilling life.
  • Persons who like to meditate in peace.
  • Artists who are looking for a time of creativity without interruptions.
  • People who do not know what they are looking for but know they need more silence and space to discover what they are seeking.

Testimonies:

“I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the hermitage.  It was perfect for the beginning of Advent and I plan to return in the future!”

“Whoever decorated and supplied the hermitage did a wonderful job.  I had what I needed and was delighted by the extras, such as the artwork.”
