Contemplation and Joy: A Contemplative Retreat in the Manner of Friends, April 5 – 8, 2018
Join April Allison and Roger Hansen at The Siena Retreat Center, Racine, Wisconsin. The Siena Center, on the Lake Michigan lakefront, will be beautiful as we move into the season of rebirth and growth.
April Allison of Red Cedar Friends Meeting (Quaker) in Lansing, Michigan, and Roger Hansen of the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Meeting will lead the retreat, which is offered through The School of the Spirit. Although the retreat is offered through a Quaker ministry, participants from all faith communities are welcome.
“…Participants will experience the distinctly Quaker manner of knowing solitude in community. Along with individual silent times for prayer, reflection, time in nature, contemplative interaction with scripture, and meeting one-on-one with retreat leaders, there will also be group silence at meals; ‘active silence’ with participants gathered doing individual handwork, reading, journaling, artwork; and time for contemplative work.”
