SoulStream Presents:

An Introduction to Ignatian Prayer: A Weekend Silent Retreat

November 5-7, 2021

Join us for a weekend designed for anyone who would like a silent, guided prayer retreat and experience Ignatian Prayer forms such as Lectio Divina, Gospel Contemplation (Praying with your imagination) and Prayer of Examen.

DATE/TIME: Friday, November 5, 7:00 pm to Sunday, November 7, noon (PT).

LOCATION: via Zoom

COST: $100 – Register early. Spaces are limited.


  • Silence is observed after the first session Friday until our closing Sunday at 11 am.
  • Four 30 minute input sessions
  • Six 45-60 minute periods for assigned personal prayer
  • Three 15 minute one-on-one spiritual direction sessions with Sally, Esther or another director (TBA)

Participants are encouraged to retreat in a physical space conducive to maintaining silence while they “vacation with the Lord” (e.g. Mark Centre, Abbotsford; Bethlehem Centre, Nanaimo; Rivendell Retreat Centre or Hermitage, Bowen Island; Air B&Bs etc.). If you plan to retreat at home, more information will be sent to participants about how to do that well.
