Almost Heaven Retreats 2019
With anticipation, we are preparing for our 2019 Almost Heaven Summer Retreat at The West Virginia Institute for Spirituality, located at 1601 Virginia Street, East, Charleston, WV 25311. Click above to download the Almost Heaven Retreat Registration Brochure. Retreats will be offered from May 24 through July 14, 2019.
The directed retreat is a silent time in which the retreatant is guided through a prayer experience by a personal spiritual director. The retreatant meets daily with the director to reflect upon the prayer experience and to discern in the light of the experience how to proceed. The material for prayer is Scripture. If you have never made a directed retreat, a Friday evening through Sunday morning is a recommended introduction. A weekend retreat is helpful in preparing retreatants to make longer retreats such as a 3 to 8 day retreat, or the thirty day experience.
We hope you will register soon so we can guarantee a space for you. If you would like more information or the opportunity to talk more about this, call (304) 345-0926. Our facility accommodates only 15 retreatants at a time. Our meals always include a vegan option and the facility is air conditioned.
We look forward to welcoming you this summer,
Sister Carole Riley, CDP, Ph.D.
