to listen more deeply to the Spirit

within and around you.

Join us for this guided silent retreat

and become present to the moment.

This time blends the beauty and holiness of Well of Mercy with a guided silent retreat for a limited number of guests. The two days include free time to enjoy our 110 acres with over two miles of walking trails, the beauty of nature includes a Prayer Path and 14 Prayer Stations, Chapel of Mercy in the woods, Peace Room, a labyrinth, screened porch and lovely resting spots along the creek.

Our retreat introduction begins on Monday, June 21 via a ZOOM call from 7p-8p; allowing time to meet each other and have conversation before entering into silence. During the call, we will lay the foundation for our guided retreat as we prepare to enter into a time with the Holy. There will be limited guided group gatherings while on property; which will occur out-of-doors and socially distanced 6 feet apart. Daily guidance will be provided each morning in writing with an outdoor group gathering each afternoon.

The retreat includes opportunities for rest, reflection, prayer, meditation, journaling, and mindfulness; weaving together meditative music, scripture, modern wisdom, reflective question and walks in nature. Well of Mercy is all about The Quiet so come prepared to joyfully un-plug because not only does technology interfere with our natural rhythms, our WiFi and cell service are very spotty.

Therapeutic services are provided at an additional fee and can be scheduled directly with the providers. You will receive their contact information with your retreat confirmation. They can answer any questions about the service.
