RETREATS restoring the harmony of body, mind & soul

Aristotle argues that humans work in order to “do leisure.” Two important implications can be drawn: first, leisure should be the centerpiece around which life revolves; and second, leisure is an activity. The Western tradition makes it clear what this activity is: an act of contemplation, beholding the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. Our retreats seek to facilitate such leisure in a monastic environment with a regular rhythm of prayer, guided readings, and plenty of time for reflection. Previous retreats include: “God Spies: Awakening to the Presence of God,” “Thought Spies: John Cassian & the Seven Deadly Sins,” “The Art of the Commonplace: Wendell Berry & Agrarianism,” and “Sacred Time & Christian Prayer: Praying the Hours with Kansas Monks.”
