As many of you know, La Casa de Maria Retreat Center, where we have spent so much wonderful time at our 2016 and 2017 silent retreats, suffered devastating damage in the mudslides in January. For those of us who have spent time there, it has been heartbreaking to know that such a sacred place has sustained so much loss. You can read about their progress, and make a donation to their recovery, at their website.
We are in the process of confirming the details to hold our 2018 SpiritRest Silent Retreat at Mary & Joseph Retreat Center in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. The retreat will be held August 12-16, 2018 (four days).
We plan to open for registration on March 15.
Although we are disappointed to shorten our retreat to four days instead of five, we are grateful to have found another beautiful retreat center to host us. We have been very attached to La Casa de Maria, but we know that the heart of SpiritRest is in the serenity of our spiritual practices, not in the physical location where we gather.
Silence. Simplicity. Solitude. SpiritRest.
Save the dates!
