July Silent Directed Retreat
Take a week-long spiritual foray into silence
Betty Daugherty, FSPA; Marj English, OSF; Laura Weber; & Lucille Winnike, FSPA

If you desire deepening and renewal, a week-long foray into the silence may be just the balm for you. This Silent Directed Retreat at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) is also offered June 4–10. Both retreats provide lavish time and sacred space for prayer, solitude, quiet and peace. In the beauty of 70 acres of prairie and woodland, you will be held by the beauty of creation. Each day you will meet with a spiritual director who will listen with you for the movement of God within your life. As you rest in silence, you may notice many of life’s gifts, regain a sense of balance, learn to be still and live in the moment, and deepen your relationship with God and others. Silent Directed Retreats are ideal for you if you could use a little quiet time away from over-stimulation to return to your center, to learn the art of deep listening, to recover a sense of wonder and gratitude for life, and to fall in love again with living.

Facilitators Betty Daugherty, FSPA; Marj English, OSF; Laura Weber; & Lucille Winnike, FSPA, are all certified spiritual directors on staff at Prairiewoods. The cost of this week-long retreat is $410 and includes spiritual direction, lodging and all meals. (Lodgers only, please.) A non-refundable deposit of $25 is required at registration. (Full payment is required to register online. If you prefer to pay the $25 registration fee now and the balance when you arrive, please call 319-395-6700.) If you want to stay in a Hermitage, you also will need to register by phone. If you have dietary restrictions that affect your health, please call or send an email to
