Spring at Riverwoods Retreat Center

Riverwoods Retreat Center

Using the tradition of Celtic spirituality this retreat overnight will focus on celebrating creation and the interrelatedness of every living thing to one another and to God. Participants will have the opportunity to experience what it is to pray while walking a wilderness path, listening to the sounds of nature at eventide, or taking a prayer walk among wildflower gardens and woods.

The retreat will be led by the Rev. Susan Skinner, a member of Spiritual Director’s International and an experienced retreat leader and will be held in Riverwoods Retreat Center near Washington, MO with lodging at the near-by Best Western Hotel in Washington. The time will include input from the retreat leader, suggested meditative experiences from the Celtic tradition, as well as times for silence and group reflections.
