Silent Retreat

November 1, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - November 3, 2017 @ 1:00 pm


Come join Alan & Gem Fadling for an Unhurried Living Silent Retreat at the beautiful Prince of Peace Abbey in Oceanside, CA. You’ll be guided in a two-day experience of solitude, silence and prayer, practices we’ve found both life-giving and life-saving. You’ll enjoy a small retreat community, even within the silence.

  • You want to step off the treadmill of busyness and make space for the presence of God.
  • You desire to engage the starting place of fullness. Silence can help quiet the need for achievements, possessions and recognition.
  • You wonder, how do I do being? Spending extended unhurried time alone with God is the perfect way to learn.
  • Your soul feels hurried and you are looking for a spiritual practice that addresses this.
    You’d like a do-able introduction to extended silence & solitude.
  • You would like to learn to slow down inside but you don’t know how.
