Do you yearn to be alone with God yet also want to be near others who are listening to, searching for, and loving God? This silent retreat provides unstructured time with optional 1:1 spiritual direction, group sharing, and guided meditations (with additional guidance for those new to the experience of a silent retreat). We’ll create a temporary, intentional community in the spirit of the Desert Elders. Together we will attend to the Wisdom – the voice of God – within each of us. Particular focus will be on doorways. Are you at a threshold of transition in your life? This retreat may be fruitful for the recently widowed and for those who are: changing a job, retiring, considering a residential move, down-sizing, having a baby, emptying the nest, or otherwise seeking discernment on a decision. Come draw close to the wells of inner peace and listen deeply.


Diane Simoni, SCHC, LICSW, a clinical social worker and trained spiritual director, is an experienced retreat leader, presenter, and psychotherapist focused on wellness. Her years of listening in centering prayer and providing psychotherapy have led her to understand and promote three pillars of wellness: physical health, psychological resiliency, and spiritual well being.
