Days of Personal Reflection
Come spend a day at the Mound, which is "a place where the Spirit dwells." We offer you solitude, a room of your own, good food, and sacred space in which to pray, walk, think, and relax.

Private Retreats

For those who wish to spend time alone to pray, reflect, think, and write. Spend a couple of days or arrange a longer stay.
