The Grace of Silence- A 3.5 day (Largely) Silent Retreat

Deep within us all there is an amazing inner sanctuary of the soul, a holy place, a Divine Center. There, Grace is pressing upon our time and space defined lives, summoning us home unto an unlimited spaciousness, the spaciousness of Being.

Simultaneously, there is a longing within us all to respond to that summons. A longing so strong, it sometimes causes our very souls to ache.  We yearn to reconnect to that place of peace and trust that we somehow know is what we are made for.

What would it be like to let go of the obsessive addictive behavior, or running from the stress of our daily lives, and towards trust of a deeper calling? What if it was absolutely necessary sometimes to do nothing, try nothing, distract ourselves with nothing, and just open to Grace as we are? 

Instead of being pulled in a million different directions, at the effect of life, we encourage you to follow that longing to the sound of silence within. To remember that underneath all the loudness of the outer world is a fresh spring of hope and renewal.

We’re inviting you to start 2021 in a radically different way! Detach from all you know, including your favorite tech devices, and go within to where Divine Love is calling, always calling to take you into its mystery. 

In our busy and noisy culture of cyber hyper-stimulation, silence is typically seen as “vacant space,” waiting to be filled up with content, any content. We try to cram every “empty” moment until it is full.

What would it be like if doing nothing could open you effortlessly to everything? 

That is the invitation for this (almost) silent retreat that COR’s Co-Founder, Britta Eskey, has been wanting to offer for many years and cannot wait to hold for you. It is an invitation to substantially connect to the Light Within.

This 3.5 day (almost) Silent Retreat includes:
  • Active Morning Meditations
  • Contemplative Morning Teaching Sessions with Britta and/or Lee
  • Several live Silent Sitting Periods/Walking Meditations during the day with Britta and/or Lee
  • (Optional) Holistic Inquiries practiced in a dyad to dive deeper into the teaching of the day
  • Evening Q and A Sessions
  • Evening Examen Prayer and Chanting sessions to complete the day

There is a really deep well inside me. And in it dwells God. Sometimes I am there, too … And that is all we can manage these days and also all that really matters: that we safeguard that little piece of Grace in ourselves.
