Metanoia Winter Silent Retreat
with Mark & Lisa Kutolowski
During this silent retreat near Strafford, Vermont, we will communally practice the monastic liturgical hours and hold space for private contemplative practice in between the hours. The hours will include readings (biblical and extra-biblical), singing, and communal silence. Silence will be kept for the entirety of the weekend.
The retreat will begin with Thursday night dinner at 5:30 pm. We will begin prayer with Thursday Vespers at 7 pm and conclude with Saturday None at 3 pm. The seven hours of the day are Vigils (before dawn), Lauds (morning), Terce (mid-morning), Sext (noon), None (mid-afternoon), Vespers (evening) and Compline (bedtime).
Those who are able and interested are welcome to continue keeping the hours with us through lunchtime on Monday, February 5th.
This retreat is free of charge. Meals will be provided potluck style. Accommodations are primitive – yurt or wall tent – but will be heated.
