Try a single page resource each week.
In just minutes a week,
we focus our lives on the readings.

The Online Retreat
is a way to give focus to a busy life.
Make the retreat alone,
with a friend, or spouse, in a group
or with a spiritual director.

It is easy.
All we do is let the material for the retreat each week just rest in the background of our daily consciousness and interact with our daily, busy life.

Give it a try. You won't regret it.

Just read or listen to the first week and let it draw you in.
Read the Feedback from those who made the retreat.

Take a look and plan to begin the retreat with people around the world.
For more information.

The book version of the Online Retreat is now out of print.
There are easy to print PDF versions of each week of the retreat to print or email to members of a group making the retreat.
