Helping people hear God's voice
Summer Silence for Women
4 days to feast on silence and rest
July 15th 7pm - July 19th noon at the MARK Centre Chalet in Abbotsford
Facilitated by Cathy Hardy, Edythe Neumann and MARK Centre staff
Beginning on Monday evening, this retreat will provide you an opportunity to slow down, be still and come to rest with yourself, and with God. Rooted in the rich mystical tradition of Christianity, the practice of
silence has been one of the pillars of many of our spiritual fathers
& mothers. You will enter into a rich journey of silence supported through group times of scripture meditation, prayers & guided journaling. You will also have the opportunity to meet with a spiritual director for personal spiritual accompaniment. The Christian Celtic view of embracing all of creation as ‘Living Word’ to us will also be part of the experience as we have time to be silent in nature.
Costs: Includes all group sessions, individual spiritual direction sessions, meals and 4 nights accommodation. A 25% non-refundable deposit required at the time of booking.
Private room: $550
Shared room: $410/person
Responses from Summer Silence:
So often in the busyness of life, especially for women, we get caught up in the needs of our families and the requirements at work. A time like this is so healing and refreshing and draws me closer to God who sustains me through the rest of the year.
The silent retreats I have been to provided by Mark Center have been life changing for me in spiritual sense. I find myself smiling at the thought of next time.
One of my friends told me I looked 5 years younger! I definitely feel refreshed and relaxed and ready for the challenges ahead of me. Probably the biggest change in me is I look forward to adding FUN to my life! It was the best gift I ever gave myself!
It was the most relaxing and peaceful experience, better than a resort.
