Almost Heaven Retreats (2020) – Get a head start on 2020 – 2020 Almost Heaven Retreats WVIS Brochure
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. 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.
