  • Silent Retreat December 16-19, 2012  Priority given to Undergraduate Seniors and Graduate Students.  The Silent Retreat provides students with a unique opportunity to engage in 5-days of quiet reflection at the end of the Fall semester. During the Fall semester, students begin a process of spiritual direction with experienced staff members, culminating in five days of silence, discernment and reflection. While each director works with students in a unique and individual way according to his or her needs, the retreat is inspired by Ignatian contemplation and the Spiritual Exercises and students are introduced to and encouraged to use a variety of prayer methods, such as the Awareness Examen, where beneficial. This retreat helps students to develop and be aware of skills for the spiritual life that can be used in everyday circumstances. Students who participate in this retreat experience progress in the discipline of communicating with God regularly. In addition, students learn what it means to have a spiritual director and the benefits of this relationship for the Christian life. The Silent Retreat is a deep spiritual experience for any student who enters into it with sincerity. The retreat is held at a peaceful retreat site located in the mountains outside of Santa Barbara.  Cost: $250 for graduate students.
