Into the Quiet - A weekend of silence, sharing and quiet reflection. Silence. Stillness. Solitude. These sacred practices are hard to come by in our daily lives - so let’s change that! This will be a small, intimate retreat housed in the lovely setting of Shrine Mont - a retreat and conference center in Orkney Springs, Virginia, located at the foot of Great North Mountain in the Shenandoah Valley and at the edge of the George Washington National Forest. Friday evening we will gather at 5:30 pm for dinner, followed by a time of prayer and meditation. Saturday will include a time of silence and other opportunities - extended meditation, the possibility of a hay ride, camp fire with s-mores (yum!), and fellowship. Suggestions and prompts for how to spend your time in silence will be available. Sunday morning we will have breakfast, a closing service for sharing and reflecting on our time away and head home around 11 a.m. All meals are provided. The accommodations include a few single rooms and the rest double occupancy. Register by clicking the button below for the type of room you want. You and a friend can ask to bunk together - we will do our best to make that happen! Registration requests will be taken on a first come first serve basis. We will do our best to accommodate your room request - and will email you with a confirmation of your room assignment after we receive your registration. The drive from Richmond to Shrine Mont takes about 2 hours and 45 minutes. After you register (payment is required to confirm your spot) you will receive an email with more details about your accommodations. We will accept cancellations 30 days prior to the event, but not after the 30 day window.
