Service Description

For all who are weary, the Silent Retreat offers space to engage in the restorative practice of silence. On Friday evening, participants will be invited to transition into a weekend of silence through prayer, somatic practices & guided meditations as a means of transitioning from the hustle of daily life into the longstanding practice of sacred silence. Friday night through Sunday morning, we will individually engage in 40 hours of collective silence. During this period of silence, participants can walk through the gardens, journal through scripture, read under the shade of the trees, engage in a life-giving hobby, or whatever silent activities you bring with you. On Sunday morning, we will break the silence in Christian worship, contemplative practices & small group reflection to process our individual experiences. Location: Benedict Inn in Beech Grove, IN. The quiet and spacious grounds include a 3-acre garden, a walkable prayer labyrinth, well-shaded grassy areas, walking paths, and indoor & outdoor lounging spaces. The retreat center houses 43 newly renovated bedrooms that are available as single or double occupancy spaces according to your preference. Date: Opening session on Friday, September 15th at 4pm (check-in window from 2pm-4pm prior to opening session). The retreat will conclude around 1pm with a closing session & lunch together on Sunday, September 17th. Registration: An initial deposit of $130 is due at registration. Your remaining registration balance will be due one month prior to the retreat.
