About the event

On the cusp of Holy Week, you are welcome to attend a half-day meditation retreat on August 10th.  This is time to use as is meaningful to you. If you wish to be alone to read, write, pray, or meditate for the entire 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. retreat, that’s fine. You may leave whenever you like, but if possible, please start the day with us by 9:00 a.m. Bring a bag lunch if you wish to eat at our mid-day time together; we’ll provide beverages. There also will be opportunities to participate in several spiritual disciplines: finger labyrinth; meditating on icons; and singing bowls. The schedule for the day is below:

  • 8:30 a.m.  Fellowship Hall - bagels, coffee, and a brief overview of the day
  • 9:00 a.m. Silence begins
  • 10:30 a.m.  The Rev. Dr. David C. Bellville offers a brief introduction to iconography and leads guided meditation using icons in the Chapel
  • 11:30 a.m. Silence resumes
  • 12:30 p.m.  Mid-day time together (optional) – coffee, tea, and juices provided
  • 1:00 p.m.  Rachel Rivera plays the singing bowls in the Chapel
  • 2:00 p.m. Silence resumes
  • 2:45 p.m.  Gathering for a time of prayer together
