Dayspring Tempe Palo Verde Room

Time to Retreat! Join us on Saturday, April 20, from 9:00am to 5:00pm in the Dayspring Tempe Palo Verde Room for “The Gift of Silence.” We will explore together the ideas found in the book Silent Compassion by Fr. Richard Rohr, as well as different methods of contemplative prayer.

Morning will include a time of getting to know more about each other, looking at ideas in Rohr’s book, and small and large group discussions.

Afternoon features time to learn different modes of contemplative prayer and time to explore these ideas on your own in silence. It will end with small and large group discussions.

A simple lunch with vegetarian and gluten-free options will be provided, and healthy snacks and beverages will be available all day. Music will be enjoyed throughout the day.

The cost is $15 to offset purchases of supplies.

The retreat is facilitated by Rev. Rosemary Anderson (retired UMC clergy), Rev. Jetty Van den Berge (Ecumenical Catholic Church), Sue Lullo (Transformative Life Coach), and Laura Hudson (Dayspring UMC Labyrinth Ministry). Please email Rosemary with questions or to register.  Registration ends April 13.
