Into the Gardens
Time & Location
About the Event
Into the Gardens is a loosely guided retreat experience integrating periods of personal silence and solitude with times of communal practice. This retreat experience is an opportunity to inhale deeply and relax into an unhurried rhythm while awakening to the beauty of creation in the gardens. In this experience, we are practicing the art of retreat in daily life; how to enter into worship while being in shared spaces not specifically set aside for worship. "For the earth is the Lord's, and everything in it," (Psalm 24:1), so let us worship Him wherever we may be.
Each participant will receive a retreat guide as an offering to help guide their time.
As this is an outdoor retreat, please check the weather and dress accordingly. Also, bring materials you typically like to have with you while on a day retreat, but remember you will be carrying these with you.
The Gardens does allow visitors to bring in your own food and beverages, or there are two restaurants for you to purchase meals and beverages. Lunch will be on your own.
If you would like to arrange a time of spiritual direction while on retreat, please email in advance to determine availability. Spiritual direction will be discounted during the retreat to $35 for a 45 minute session.
