A Directed Silent Retreat is being offered the weekend of September 22-24. The retreat will take place at the beautiful Bethany Retreat House in Dickson, TN. You will have a private room with bath. Beginning at noon on Friday and ending at 3 pm on Sunday, participants will have a mostly silent experience during the weekend. Each participant is asked to be in prayer with scripture throughout the weekend and to meet two times one-on-one with myself, as your Spiritual Director, for conversation over your experience in prayer and silence.  As your companion for the weekend, I will be giving creative space, a creative project and reflection around your creative process.  The cost is $350 for room and board, meals, project supplies and spiritual direction. Registration by Tuesday, August 15 with a $90 non-refundable deposit will hold a room.  It is not necessary to be part of a Waking Up Grey group to attend this retreat, but Waking Up Grey participants are strongly encouraged to attend.  More details upon registration.
