“Silence is the language of God” - Thomas Keating

The swift speed in which life moves these days can be dizzying. Screen-time, jam-packed schedules, and the onslaught of information is making us sick. Going on a silent retreat, allows you to calibrate the rhythms of your life as you get in touch with your body, heart, mind, and soul.

Slowing down and taking time away from your routine and distractions is the first step to inviting solitude and silence into your life.

It’s counter-culture, but our core craves it like never before. Start the decade and the year off from a centered place.

Location: Five Oaks Retreat Centre, Brantford, Ontario

So, you know that breaking away, catching your breath, and listening deeply is likely a good idea, but you’re not entirely sure you can handle the quiet.

This semi-silent retreat offers a excellent introduction to the benefits of silence and offers helpful tips to make the most of your experience.

Spiritual Direction may be available during this retreat, where participants can meet with a spiritual direction for 45 minutes at some point throughout the retreat



If a personal silent retreat by yourself sounds more like your style, but you don’t really know where to begin, we can help. This option offers you suggestions to find a perfect retreat setting, giving your personalized resources to use on your retreat, and providing you “pro-tips” to help you make the most of your time. Spiritual Direction may also be available to you if you desire.
