Preached Retreats

"Preached" retreats are more interactive and less "preachy" than this customary nomenclature suggests! Usually spanning a weekend (sometimes a few weekdays), these retreats are led by a "retreat master" who offers a series of "conferences" or talks following some kind of theme.

You'll find our 2019 offerings below. The requested donation covers room, board, and conferences.

To make reservations, click on the links below, or call 661 944-2178, or email retreats@valyermo.com.
