A silent retreat, while experienced personally in a community of others, invites one to come away from life’s endless chatter and distracting demands to an inspiring (and challenging?) listening space to slow down. In this time, one can offer God as much undivided attention as possible, and experience the silence in the fullness and presence of God’s still small voice. This time provides an opportunity to disconnect from the noise and listen into reconnection while in the company of others. Here is a resource to do one on your own.
Various retreats are offered during the year. Our most recent one, just prior to Covid lockdowns was “Descending into Grace: Embracing God’s Idea of Becoming.” This retreat explores the invitation of grace to move away from the ascent towards success, achievement, and movement towards the top to a descent that embraces the becoming that happens in the transformation love of God. Allowing for spiritual practices that shape and form our entire selves, this retreat offers silence, interaction, creative activity, and laughter.
One of the hallmarks of Selah retreats is the time and space to learn what it means to savor. Whether it’s a meal of healthy eating and pausing or a slow intentional walk, this type of a retreat can be done both alone and with others. Using this resource to SAVOR, you can remember more easily what it means to slow and enjoy the gift of being present.
