What is the Women’s Retreat?

Our annual Women’s Retreat provides a space for women of all ages to gather together. We spend the weekend engaging in conversation, practicing yoga, sharing meals, praying, and sharing a space with one another.

We will begin the weekend on Friday evening with an informal social hour where we invite people to bring snacks and beverages to share. We will split our time on Saturday between a variety of programming, free time to explore about Roslyn Retreat Center, and an evening Holy Eucharist. We conclude the weekend on Sunday morning with our last session of programming and morning prayer.

We invite you to join us for our 2020 Retreat: “Pulling It Together: In Search of Wholeness,”* where we will explore moments that oppose the centrifugal forces that tear us apart including quiet time alone, contemplative prayer and other spiritual practices, music, and yoga. We will find ways to pull ourselves together with the “golden repair” that can only truly be found in spiritual pursuits.

The cost the retreat is $175 per person, which includes lodging for Friday and Saturday nights, three meals on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday. For those who wish to stay at home on Friday and Saturday night instead of at Roslyn overnight, there is an option for a commuter fee of $75. This includes programming, three meals on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday. Scholarship support is available and can be requested through the registration form.

Registration is open now through Sunday, January 12th. Registration is online HERE. We will also have an iPad (for payments) in the gathering area of the Parish House on Sundays, January 5th and 12th. Please email Keli Shipley Cooper for questions about registration at kshipleycooper@stpaulsrva.org.

*About wholeness

In her book Gift from the Sea, author Anne Morrow Lindbergh writes “Woman’s life today is tending more and more toward the state of … ‘Zerrissenheit – torn-to-pieces-hood.’ This state of Zerrisenheit is one that most women can identify with but as Lindbergh notes, “She cannot live perpetually in ‘Zerrissenheit.’ She will be shattered into a thousand pieces.”
