Personal Day Retreats
At Fern Creek one can inhale and exhale with the quiet comings and goings of life in the woods. Space opens for prayer, journaling, reading, rest, study, and contemplation. A trail follows deer paths through the forest (old growth and new), a hammock strung between an oak and maple tree invites one to rest (or nap) for about eight months of the year, and benches throughout Fern Creek invite guests to come be present--to sit for awhile, aware of what lives and moves and shares this moment and this place with visitors.
Guided or unguided, day retreatants come listen, sit, wander and rest at Fern Creek for some part of a day. In addition to meandering the woods, orchards, and fields at Fern Creek, the Prayer Cabin will be yours to use for two, four, six or eight hours (most available on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays). Your visit can include reserving the guesthouse apartment (with kitchen, bath, writing table and couches), and can include a spiritual direction session or not.
You might also consider the Into the Woods Retreat as part of your retreat, or for your retreat experience.
