A Contemplative Retreat in the Manner of Friends, April 5-8, 2018

Join us at “Contemplation and Joy: A Contemplative Retreat in the Manner of Friends,” offered by The School of the Spirit from April 5-8, 2018, at the Siena Center in Racine, Wisconsin.

The Siena Center is on LaLake Michigan near the Siena Centerke Michigan, and the lakefront should be beautiful as we move into the season of rebirth and growth. The center is accessible for those retreat participants who need a barrier free venue.

At its heart, the retreat is a time when we can simply be with God, attend to the divine stirrings in our souls, and open to grace. We offer a distinctly Quaker way of knowing solitude in community. The weekend will offer space for silence as well as time for sharing together.

April Allison and Roger Hansen are now offering their fifth retreat in Wisconsin. Roger (Milwaukee, Northern Yearly Meeting) has helped to lead retreats in Ohio, New York, and Pennsylvania, and has formed spiritual nurture groups in several monthly meetings. April (Red Cedar, Lake Erie Yearly Meeting) is contemplative by na­ture and justice seeking by conviction. She is a SotS board member and a spiritual director.

You can register online through the School of the Spirit website. We offer a flexible fee schedule.

We hope to see at the Siena Center in the spring. And, of course, if you know of others who may be interested, please spread the word.
