We Are Not Taking Overnight Reservations at this Time
The Open Path Retreat Center is currently not offering overnight retreats, nor are we taking reservations. However, our programming continues at partner locations, and we will still offer day retreats at least once a month. Click the button below to be added to a notification list, and we will contact you when reservations re-open.
Day or Overnight
A retreat is a time to come away from our ordinary activities, to rest, pray, and invite the sacred to renew our spirits. There are many kinds of retreats (from one to thirty days) offered at the Open Path Retreat Center. Aside from our Days of Reflection, Private and Directed Retreats are the most common.
Upcoming Day Retreats
We offer Day Retreats at least once a month, designed to help you focus, experience, and grow. Day Retreats are held at our partner locations throughout Southwest Florida. Beverages are provided, bring your own lunch.
A directed retreat is a one-on-one retreat, usually three to eight days. Retreatants meet with a spiritual companion once each day, and through their sharing, spiritual director acts as a ‘soul companion’ on the directee’s journey. He/she does not give directives per se; but rather guides the directee in observing, intuiting, and responding to God’s presence in their life. In a serene setting we listen more deeply for the movement of the Spirit in our lives. See “Special Events” for a listing of any scheduled directed retreats.
A private retreat is a period of silent days similar to the directed retreat, except that in a private retreat there is no meeting with a spiritual companion. Our library is available for all retreatants.
Personal Renewal Retreat
Spiritual renewal can be defined as the process of growth and transformation into the image of God. You may have spiritual direction,and or participate in one of our programs. Cost: Freewill Donation to an amount of your choosing. Stay 1-3 nights.
While the House of Prayer is in transition, no overnight retreats or full day personal retreats are available. Please join us for day retreats being held at partner locations.
Many groups enjoy using the Open Path Retreat Center. Your group is invited to rent one of our facilities for your own gathering or for a program facilitated by a staff member. This option will be available again when we move into new facilites – but no reservations are being taken at this time.
