The 24 Hour Advent Retreat of Silence is upon us again... a sacred space for transformation at the end of 2018 and the beginning of Advent. Come see what "hidden beauty" God might have for you to unwrap. It will be held Sunday, December 8th to Monday, December 9th at Joseph and Mary Retreat House in Mundelein, IL. . This is a new location that we are really excited about - all single rooms that are newly redecorated with double beds and private bath.. You may arrive and get settled anytime after 2 pm on Sunday, although the retreat officially begins with dinner at 6 pm. We will conclude at 3 pm on Monday.

If this retreat is new to you, here is what you need to know... It is simple. It is uncomplicated. It's for women only and we have the whole retreat center to ourselves. There is no pressure to perform or prove yourself or impress others. It is an invitation to show up and open up your heart to the voice of God.

You will have the opportunity to take advantage of various stations, including meditating on art, reading, meditative yoga, life mapping, listening prayer, and more. Or you can choose to rest and retreat in your room and simply be present with God. That's the beauty of this time - you are free to make it what you want.

The retreat price* includes the overnight, 3 meals & materials:

o Regular rate of $165 (after October 20, 2019)

o Early-bird rate of $150 (on or before October 20, 2019) Be sure to use promo code "ADVENTGIFT"

Space is limited, so register early. Spots fill up quickly in what has become a holiday tradition for many people.

Finally we are grateful to the women who carve out time at the start of the busiest season each year to join the silence in the midst of community. It is a highlight of our Advent Season, and we are humbled to share it with you.
