Personal Retreats
Throughout a person’s spiritual journey, there are times that call for an inner focus between the individual and God. Personal retreats are designed to remove all outside distractions and help guests commit to a time of inner reflection and prayer throughout our quiet and comforting grounds. During this time, guests can reflect upon life, relationships with God and future journeys.
Guests taking part in spiritual retreats often find themselves most comfortable in one of our private hermitages or apartments, providing quiet accommodations with striking views of the grounds around St. Mary’s Sewanee.
Our staff will cater to all your spiritual needs while on a personal retreat, with options such as private spiritual direction from The Rev. John Runkle, worship services available at several local churches or the Community of St. Mary Convent, and yoga.
