Renew your mind and spirit
Renew your mind and spirit

Get more info about this event »

Description: Step away from everyday stresses and demands and spend some intentional, quality time with the Creator. Listen to what St. Paul told his community: “Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds” (Romans 12:2). Stay-at-Home Directed RetreatJune 4-6 (ask about adding extra days)9 a.m. Friday to 4 p.m. Sunday A directed retreat is a personally guided prayer experience. Each retreatant is assigned a spiritual director with whom they meet daily for reflection and spiritual discernment. A directed retreat reconnects us with God. It gives us an opportunity to step outside of our everyday life, to rest in God’s love, to understand more deeply who we are and who we are called to be. For years the Renewal Center has offered three- and five-day directed retreats at our guest house. Now we are offering the same chance to connect with our spiritual directors through a guided retreat, but you can do it from your home. All people making the retreat begin with a communal prayer experience and then individuals meet one-on-one with our trained, experienced retreat directors. The group meetings and prayers will be conducted via Zoom, and individual meetings can be conducted via Zoom or the telephone. What’s the Cost? Our suggested donation for the three-day directed retreat is $90, but no one will be turned away. Please support us with what you can afford. Not Sure This Is for You? Contact the Renewal Center (by email info@pbrenewalcenter.org or calling 816-415-3745) and one of our directors will reach out to you with more information. Why should I try a Directed Retreat? A directed retreat might be for you if: ● You’re experiencing or anticipating a transition in your life.● You’re looking for something to recharge your batteries.● You’re dealing with a loss, change, or challenge in your life and could use some community, guidance, and support.● You’re unsatisfied with your relationship with God and/or others and want to make changes.● You’re curious about questions of faith and spirituality and want to learn how to engage in those questions.● People come for their own purposes and desires, and one of the strengths of a retreat is that people can come for many reasons and each gets what they need.● If you are looking for a longer experience, your retreat can be extended a day or two before or after the given dates.
