Silent Retreats

Experience silence and solitude in an atmosphere of gentle care for tending your soul.


You will receive preparation for retreating, a structure with supports inviting you to slow down and be present to Divine Love, nurturing meals, individual and/or group spiritual direction to guide you along the way, and tips to transition back to life’s commitments.

Two-four days. Location in West Michigan.

Individual Directed Silent Retreat

Experience the power and peace of going on a silent retreat designed just for you and your situation. 

Through a directed retreat, Debra will help you prepare to go on and return from retreat as well as what do to make the most of your intentional silence and solitude.


You have the option of participating online or in a location of our choosing.

Group Directed Silent Retreat

Strange as it may seem, there is a beautiful experience of communal encouragement when retreating into silence with others.  

Making space for others with fewer words can deepen spiritual contemplation and connections. The retreat opens and closes with verbalized group sharing as bookends that hold space free from the noise and press of life. Each day offers an hour of individual direction and evening prayers. 

Sign up to join an existing group or create your own group. 

When we choose to spend time alone, we are somehow better when we are together. When we choose to spend time in silence our words become more meaningful. When we choose to wait, more is accomplished.
