Thursday November 22, 2018 7pm – Sunday November 25, 2018 noon.
This retreat is designed to enable you to find some sacred space for rest and reflection, renewal and restoration. You will be guided into silence over 3 days and invited to experience the still, small voice of God loving you. Individual spiritual direction sessions will be available with Cathy Hardy & Gillian Drader. Cathy will be facilitating this journey of deep silence & she along with MARK Centre staff will be your hosts.
A word from Cathy…..’my first silent retreat was 20 years ago…It was a gift I wasn’t sure I wanted. Someone paid for me to go and so I went. I was tentative. Unsure. Not used to this degree of stillness and silence and there was a degree of fear and apprehension. What happened for me during those 3 days became some of the most profound treasure I am still gleaning from today. To open myself up to the Presence of Love in such vulnerable stillness was life-changing and has fueled my passion in leading retreats for the past 15 years as I want to share this experience with others.’
“I have been on many retreats but none have been as profoundly moving as this weekend was for me. I would not have thought it possible to experience so much, open so much and change so much in just two days. I have a feeling that, going forward, I am going to think of my life as before the Soul Care Weekend and after the Soul Care Weekend. Thank you Cathy!” (Antoinette June 2018 Soul Care Retreat Participant Mt. Carmel, Niagara Falls)
