About This Event

Join the journey from text to pulpit as we follow the Spirit, through prayer and reflection, deeper into the Word of God and shed light on the challenges of life and the persistence of divine grace. Paul Tillman, an Oblate and pastor, guides this afternoon of “standing vigil” (no you don’t stand the whole time) of prayer, meditation, and conversation about the Sunday Gospel. Then join the Sisters for Vigil, where we hear Paul’s reflection on the text and end the evening together over dinner. The Epiphany text of the day is Luke 2:22-40. When Jesus presents himself into my life, am I moved to peace, pain, or praise?

Why Retreat?

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

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne

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.
