About This Event

Every year during Holy Week, C.S. Lewis read through a moving set of plays by his friend, Dorothy L. Sayers. Now Katy Wehr, PhD, offers you the chance to share the same experience. Katy will introduce the plays and involve participants in reading from Sayers’s “The Man Born to be King” – a radio play cycle on the life of Christ from 1940’s England.  While the plays initially sparked protests, they quickly won over their wartime listeners through Sayers’s refreshing portrayal of Christ as someone who lived in a world suspiciously like our own: full of need, politics, and everyday people.  Help bring various scenes to life by reading aloud or just come to listen, enjoy, and discuss.  You’ll want to follow Lewis’s lead and read the whole cycle during Lent!

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
