Spiritual Retreats at The Center

RetreatSpiritual retreats at The Center offer the opportunity to take a break from the busy-ness of life, giving us time and space to open up to Spirit through the practice of silence, reflection and shared intentional conversation.

No prior retreat experience necessary at Center retreats, only a willingness to set this time aside for God in a beautiful setting with other other intentional participants. All denominations and faith traditions welcome.

If you would like to be informed of our next retreat at the Center, please sign up for our email newsletter.



Courage to Lead Retreats for Clergy & Congregation Lay Leaders

LabyrinthThe Center for Spiritual Development in partnership with the Center for Courage and Renewal, Bainbridge Island, Washington offer a five-retreat Courage to Lead series for clergy and lay congregation leaders' personal and professional renewal. This program is part of a growing national Courage to Lead network and puts us in collaboration with facilitators across the country. Congregations and communities depend on clergy and lay leaders for so much, this is an opportunity for church leaders to take a few days of quiet self-care and support, like the type that so often and so generously given to others. We hope that you will decide to join us.  We are excited about the opportunity to offer this five retreat Courage to Lead series. 

Please visit our Courage to Lead page for the retreat series schedule, program description and registration information.

This work is made possible through a generous grant from the Lilly Foundation to the Center for Courage and Renewal. We encourage you to visit the Center for Courage & Renewal website and read about this program in more detail.
