Immerse yourself in a sacred week of silence.

We invite you to a week of sacred space, silence, solitude, rest and prayer. Let’s steep in the love of all of creation on 70 acres of prairie and woodland at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) for a week-long retreat. We will deepen our awareness of life’s gifts; restore balance; live in the moment; and nurture relationship with God, self, others and Earth. Each day affords opportunity for healthy meals, quiet personal reflection and an hour-long session with a spiritual director who assists in sensing and citing the movement of the Spirit in life. An optional centering prayer session closes each day. Body modalities, such as massage, healing touch and reflexology, are available for an additional cost.
