Silent Directed Retreat: Tapping into Benedictine Wisdom (on-site)

August 6-11,2024 | Tuesday, 7:00 p.m.—Sunday, 1:00 p.m. CDT

facilitated by Mary Kay Whitacre and other spiritual directors associated with Sophia Center 
Cost: $480 ($50 non-refundable deposit required to reserve your spot, remaining balance due one week prior to retreat)
Registration is limited to 15 

Join us for the opportunity to settle deeply into the richness of sacred silence, where we can hear God’s voice most clearly.  Within this time and space, we will pause from the noisiness of everyday life so we can listen to the divine wisdom within us. You will have access to daily prayer with the Benedictine sisters, spiritual direction, guided meditation, and a peaceful monastery atmosphere.

An evening social will be held on Tuesday, from 6-7:00 p.m. Please plan to join and meet your fellow retreatants.

Please register by August 1. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available; if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at We strongly encourage you to add to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat.
