Retreats and Sabbaticals

Our small retreat house is two short blocks from the Pacific Ocean. A walking path trails between the cliffs and the ocean, along tide pools and on to the more public sandy beach. Sunsets still the days with beauty.

We offer a comfortable and welcoming environment where one can easily enter into a time of silence and solitude. There are four private rooms with baths in a townhouse setting. Two retreatants share a kitchen and patio, as well as the common space of living room / library and chapel areas. This quiet and peaceful environment offers a contemplative space in which to pray, read, journal, listen to music or simply sit by the fire on a cool evening. We provide a well-stocked kitchen where retreatants prepare their individual meals according to their own schedules.

We have a large selection of books on prayer and spirituality, both historical and contemporary. We have other books, music and art supplies to nurture one’s soul and creative spirit as well.

Eucharistic liturgy is available daily at 8:00am at Sacred Heart Church. Churches of other denominations are also within close walking distance.

Retreatants may meet with a spiritual director daily or as desired and designed. We offer individually directed retreats, with attentiveness to one’s personal journey, including the 30 Day Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

We also offer the self-directed sabbatical for persons who prefer unstructured time with the freedom to choose their own pace and rhythm. We do not offer any particular programs for a sabbatical time, although spiritual direction is available.
