There will be five sessions plus an afternoon of “pick-your-own” workshops to help us move out of our heads and into our hearts and body as we ground and get centered in God. Each session will include:

  • contemplative prayer practices

  • teaching

  • storytelling

  • personal reflection

It’s our hope that people will walk away with a sense of real rest, being rooted in God, and more calm and clear in their soul. This retreat is positioned perfectly in the new year (and decade!) to support the desire, effort and practice to live and love fully well.


Friday, January 30 at 7:30pm to Sunday, February 2 at 11:00am.  Check out the full schedule here.


Mt. Carmel is a stunning venue with history and soul and is situated on the banks of Niagara Falls amidst the vines of the Monastery Vineyard and Winery.  Each room is furnished with 2 single beds, a private bathroom, desk and chair. Staying onsite is not only convenient, but makes it easier to stay in the retreat mind-set with your fellow participants. 

This year’s retreat is a much more intimate setting and a true “get-away”. We will NOT be offering a commuter option and there are only 60 spots available.

The land on which we will gather on retreat is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum agreement. Today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.


This will be a small retreat with only 60 spots available. Last year we sold out and we’d hate for you to miss out. Register today.
