We don’t experience much silence in our lives. This retreat provides an opportunity to gather together and pursue an inner quiet.
This Seeking Stillness retreat is for anyone wanting to experience silence in a busy world: from life-long practitioners to those just beginning to explore meditation. The event features a talk and instruction from Carl McColman, contemplative writer, speaker, retreat leader and host of podcast “Encountering Silence.” This retreat will teach contemplation, centering prayer and a variety of different methods, including meditation’s Christian foundation.


Carl McColman is a prolific author and Lay Cistercian who helps people reclaim the heritage of Christian contemplative spirituality through teachings of the Christian mystics, the practice of silent prayer, and the revival of ancient practices like Lectio Divina.
