A Personal Retreat has Transforming Power and Endless Possibility
No matter how you define your desire to get away for a while, a personal retreat offers deep and lasting benefits:
- If you want to relax, get away from it all, have room to breathe and find some peace and calm, find solitude for painting or writing, a personal retreat can help you return home refreshed and replenished.
- Does something seem missing in your life? Are you at a crossroads and want to imagine the road less traveled, figure out what matters most and create a new vision for your life? A personal retreat can jump start you in the right direction.
- If you have made an intention to deepen your spiritual life with soul work and reconnect with the divine, a personal retreat provides a sacred space for transformation to occur.
All our hermitages come with high speed internet connection. Give yourself time and space to work on that special project, do some research or finally get at that creative writing you’ve been wanting to find time for.
Whatever your goal, nourishing the body, mind and soul requires some alone time, some get-away time with yourself, with nature, with the divine presence.
Five Great Reasons to Book a Personal Retreat
- A glorious place in any season; the quiet is palpable and invites deep listening.

- Discover exciting new authors at our library and bookstore through an exceptional collection of books about creativity, spirituality, healing.
- Enjoy meditation indoors or out: in the beauty of our chapel and meditation hall, or on our walking trails.

Thank you for this wonderful place. It is a witness to the compassion our world needs. I needed the rest that I found there very badly. I am quite refreshed and grateful.
