Day Guests

Come “on your own” for a time of personal reflection, rest, restoration, and renewal. Your private retreat provides time in a supportive and contemplative environment for you to explore the quiet sanctuary of Well of Mercy.

For your personal retreat you may choose a Day in Nature (day visit) or an overnight retreat (2-night minimum).

Enjoy the beauty of Well of Mercy while walking the prayer path, reflecting at one of the fourteen prayer stations, watching the creek take your cares away, sitting on a bench or lying in one of the hammock chairs.

Many guests enjoy listening to the sounds of the birds singing, watching the butterflies flutter by, or taking a nap in one of the many swings or rocking chairs.

During your unstructured and unscheduled retreat time you may wish to walk the outdoor labyrinth, meditate/pray in the Chapel in the woods, enjoy therapeutic services, visit the Peace Room library and read, journal your thoughts and musings, visit Laura’s Place and sit by the fire on a chilly day, or sit outside in the evening to see the stars and listen to the sounds of nature.

During meals you can enjoy the nurturing food made with love to rejuvenate your body and soul.

Your personal retreat time is just for you to allow your body, mind and spirit the sacred space to renew.

All visits are by reservation.  Call to check availability and to schedule your retreat.
