Walking Barefoot on Holy Ground: Weekend with Paula D'Arcy

Path through woods


Drawing on the themes of her newest book, Stars at Night (to be released September 2016), Paula will explore living life in such a way that you are true to yourself and living into a deeper authenticity. 

What does it take to realize the true effect of awakening in order to water seeds for the world?  After the first evening, this retreat will be a silent retreat.  Throughout the weekend, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the conferences, as always, but all other times, including meals, will be silent. 

Silence gives us inner space to listen to the voice of the Divine, to the voice inside our hearts.  Retreat participants will have the opportunity   to walk the outdoor labyrinth, along the lakeshore, and on the grounds.

Friday, April 21, to Sunday, April 23, 2017
The retreat begins with the evening meal at 5:30pm and ends after the noon meal on Sunday.  Retreatants should arrive early to settle in before the evening meal on Friday.


Cost of $295 includes $50 non-refundable deposit, overnight accommodations, and meals.
