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 2017 offerings below. The requested donation covers room, board, and conferences.
