WVIS Retreats


“Above anything, welcome silence, for it brings fruits that no tongue can speak of, neither can it be explained.” ~ Isaac of Nineveh

Our lives are so busy and filled with actual noise (talking, TV, traffic, work) and the noise that we might describe as distractions (social media, to-do lists, or video games). Then there is the noise within ourselves – the thoughts and feelings that result in stress, confusion, anxiety, or uncertainty.

The West Virginia Institute for Spirituality (WVIS) offers 3-day, 5-day, 8-day, and 30-day silent Ignatian-directed retreats. Your Retreat Director will walk you through what to expect and is available to you throughout the retreat in case you have any questions. The “container” of the retreat includes time for silence, prayer (with scripture assigned), exercise, rest, and two 30-minute direction sessions each day. Each of these retreats is available either in-person at WVIS (in the Hermitage) or via Zoom.
