CHARIS NYC presents this peer-led weekend Still+Silent Retreat.

  • Emerge from the retreat with approaches to integrating silence in your daily life

What to Expect

Our Still+Silent Retreat is an introduction to silence for men and women in their 20s and 30s, regardless of where you are in your own faith journey, and what your previous experiences with silence might be. The only prerequisite is the desire to find quiet and contemplative space in which to go deeper with your relationship with God.

Still+Silent will introduce you to the rich history of silence in the Roman Catholic tradition including Christian contemplation, meditation, and silence. In the tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola, this retreat uses silence as a tool to quiet the thinking mind and make space in which to listen to the voice of God. It is an opportunity to disengage the exterior world in order to be more attentive to the interior world.
