Quiet Retreat July 2023Quiet retreats are unstructured and allow the Spirit to guide the shape of each day. Spiritual direction sessions are available at the beginning of the retreat and then a daily check-in is offered. Guided nature walks are offered each day. Reiki, massage, and other healing arts can be scheduled by guests. An atmosphere of quiet is maintained in the house and on the grounds, except for the daily readings at lunch, and conversations around the fire and over dinner. Themed Retreats In addition to receiving benefits from the quiet and landscape, we also offer retreats organized around specific themes related to the many changes that arise throughout our lives. Retreat leaders will share their insights during group sessions, and then you will have plenty of unstructured time to reflect on the teachings. Guided nature walks are offered each day. Reiki, massage, and other healing arts can be scheduled by guests. Fall Equinox: The Beautiful Darkness September 22 – September 27

Marywood Franciscan Spirituality Center engages persons seeking greater meaning in life and a deeper relationship with God, others, self and all creation by providing space for inspiration, reflection and solitude.
We offer programs and retreats year-round and spiritual direction on and off-site. Spiritual direction is a one-on-one meeting between a director and a person seeking a deeper relationship with God. The focus is awareness of God in everyday life. There are five certified spiritual directors on staff.
