Binkley Quiet Weekend

Fall is here so holidays are not far behind. If you are already dreading the overwhelm and exhaustion of Christmas, save these dates to practice self-compassion and prepare yourself for a more peaceful Advent.

Binkley Quiet Weekend will be held December 8-10 (4:00 PM Friday until 1:00 PM Sunday) at the beautiful St. Francis Prayer Center north of Greensboro. Join other Binkley members and friends in a time of group discussion, reflection, and silence with ample personal time for reading, conversation, walking in nature or just resting.

To those of you who are wondering, “Just what is a quiet weekend?”: it is simply a time to step aside from your usual responsibilities and routine to make time and space for relaxation and reflection. There is an emphasis on slowing down and being quiet so you can listen to that “still small voice.” There will be opportunities for contemplative discussion interspersed with sitting in silence as well as personal time to read, relax, journal, draw, walk, or talk with friends—or just rest.

We are limiting the weekend to 16 participants. To hold your place, please write a check to Binkley and return the REGISTRATION FORM to Alice Glover.
