Individual Guided Retreats

Guests on an individual guided retreat visit us for a time of reflection and prayer in silence and to meet with a brother for some time of individual spiritual direction. They also have opportunity to join the Brothers in the house’s regular round of worship, silence, and meals.

Most weekdays and some weekends are available for individual retreats.

Please note: For these retreats spiritual direction must be requested in advance and is subject to availability of a brother for the time of the retreat.

Suggested fees for a Companioned Retreat 
We strive to make retreat time available to all who seek it. (Suggested fees can be reduced in cases of financial hardship.)
However, the suggested fees cover only a portion of the expenses for making our facilities available. We are grateful for any additional donations in support of our retreat ministry.

$100.00 per person per night + $25.00 per spiritual conversation
$50.00 for students/young adults + $15.00 per spiritual conversation

Reservations are confirmed upon receipt of a non-refundable deposit equal to 50% of your total fee.
