Private Wellness Retreats

A private retreat provides an opportunity to get away from hectic daily life to seek solitude for rest, renewal and prayer. Choosing to include a spiritual direction session with your private time can enrich the experience. Give yourself sacred time in a place of serenity to allow everyday stresses to drift away.

What is available for you?

  • Daily Eucharist
  • Private room with bath
  • Delicious meals
  • Two chapels
  • Healing garden
  • 26 acres of desert walking paths
  • Pool and whirlpool

Spiritual direction (encouraged to be arranged at least 2 weeks before your stay)
There is no set schedule.  It is up to you to use this time for prayer, rest or whatever is needed to rest and renew.

What is a directed retreat?

A directed retreat includes a spiritual director.  Spiritual direction is available upon request during your private retreat to provide you with a path to follow while you are here.  Our spiritual directors include lay men and women, priests and religious with experience and training in different styles of direction.  Our suggested fee for spiritual direction is $45-65 per visit.
