Holding the Silence

We are looking at the possibility of offering a short formation program in 2020 on giving a silent retreat day and/or weekend based on the WellSpring model. Participants would be spiritual directors who are interested in offering these days or retreats in their own setting. We anticipate that this program would be for a small group meeting about five times throughout the year, including a weekend retreat. There will be a cost for participants to be determined as the program takes shape.

In these early dreaming days, we would like to hear from you if are interested in this type of formation, along with an indication of what you would like to experience and learn. Please contact Ann Lock at
