What is a Busy Person’s Retreat?
A Busy Person’s Retreat is a time of focused prayer and spiritual direction. It is perfect for people who cannot take a whole weekend away for a retreat, and for people who are interested in working one on one with someone for a short time to grow in their spiritual life. It can be done within the busyness of life.
What makes up the Online Busy Person’s Retreat?
A Busy Person’s Retreat has two components:
- Daily Prayer Time: Committing for 30 minutes of daily prayer using the material the spiritual direction suggests for you
- Spiritual Direction: Meeting daily with a spiritual director via Skype, Google Chat, or FaceTime video
How does it work?
Each day, you spend at minimum 30 minutes in prayer using the material your spiritual director suggests you to pray with.
Then, you would meet for 60 minutes using video conference with a spiritual director to discuss your relationship with God or what’s happening in your prayer life or possible questions you feel God is inviting you to discern.
