A time to reflect.

As the winter season gives way into Spring, new life begins to push it's way into view. The signs of this new life are almost imperceptible at first and over time seem to burst forth; a picture of what is often gestating in our own mind and hearts. Paying attention to what is growing beneath the cover of 'winter' and nurturing it's growth often takes time; Time to be quiet, time to listen, time to rest. The Mount Hermon Spring Reflective Retreat offers you the opportunity to spend time paying attention to your soul. Unlike other women's retreats, the Mount Hermon reflective retreats are designed to provide a quantity of time alone with the Lord.

While this retreat is designed to provide the space and quiet to nurture the soul, there are also ample opportunities for fellowship with like-minded women around great meals and free time. Mount Hermon's adventure facilities and popular recreation options like ocean kayaking are an option as part of your program. The Redwood Canopy Tours and massage are also an option for an additional cost.

March 10-12, 2017: Meeting site is at the MacAfee Fieldhouse. Involves walking.
March 17-19, 2017: Meeting site is Youth Memorial, central location, close to dining and housing
