Personal Retreat Opportunities for Individuals
Jesus told his disciples to “come away with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” We welcome all people to experience the quiet spaciousness of Holy Wisdom Monastery. Whether you choose to walk the nature trails, sleep, browse the library, join community prayer or find a spot near the lake to write in your journal, you open yourself to the inner journey.
Plan your retreat for a day, an overnight, a weekend or longer. Our facilities provide comfort without distraction. Single or double guest rooms in our renovated Retreat and Guest House have private bathrooms.
Shared meals in our eco-friendly monastery building allow you to engage in conversation with members of the community and with monastery guests. We offer meals made from healthy, locally grown food. A light breakfast is provided in the Retreat and Guest House with your overnight room reservation.
For those seeking a more solitary experience, private hermitages can be reserved for a week or more. These small houses include a kitchenette, sitting area, bathroom and an outdoor deck overlooking a wooded landscape. Whether working on a personal project or seeking a deeper connection with God, a hermitage surrounds you in silence and simplicity.
Directed retreats provide the personal retreat experience and include regular sessions of spiritual guidance. The spiritual guide facilitates your reflection on your life experience in relation to God, yourself, and others.
For more information, or to schedule a personal retreat, hermitage retreat, group retreat, spiritual guidance session, meeting, wedding, funeral or other event contact our hospitality and event coordinator at 608-836-1631, x100.
