Come to the Quiet
This time blends the beauty and holiness of Well of Mercy with a guided Silent Retreat. The four days include free time to enjoy our 110 acres with over two miles of walking trails, the beauty of nature, Prayer Path and 14 Prayer Stations, Chapel of Mercy in the woods, cozy library, gift shop, labyrinth, screened porch pavilion and lovely resting spots along the creek.
Join this guided silent retreat and become present to the moment. Gift yourself time at Well of Mercy to be in nature and sacred space—to listen more deeply to the Spirit within.
Finding the Blessings includes opportunities for: rest, reflection, prayer, meditation, journaling, and mindfulness; weaving together meditative music, scripture, modern wisdom, reflective questions, and walks in nature.
The retreat blends the beauty and holiness of Well of Mercy with a guided silent retreat for just 12 guests; placing you in community with like-minded sojourners.
There are limited group gatherings while on property; which will occur out-of-doors and social distanced (weather permitting). Daily guidance will be provided each morning in writing—with an outdoor group gathering each afternoon.
The four days include free time to enjoy our 110 acres with over two miles of walking trails, a labyrinth, screened porch, Chapel of Mercy in the woods, and lovely resting spots along the creek. 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. Please limit your request to one service until all have had the opportunity to register. The providers will contact you with your appointment time. If you have questions about a service, please contact the providers directly.
Retreat is led by Sandra O'Brien, Well of Mercy's Executive Director and Nancy Foushee, MSW.
Cost: $420 for private room / private bath with complimentary meals.
Currently, social distancing measures will be maintained during presentations, meals, as well as during alone time. Face coverings are required while inside (unless in private bedroom). We will notify you if our safety protocols change.
Please contact our office at 704-539-5449 if you have questions about this retreat, our COVID protocols, or entering into silence.
Blessings and Peace on your Journey.
