About SEEL Retreat
You will commit to an hour each day of personal prayer on material assigned by your spiritual director. You'll also need to arrange for an hour weekly with your spiritual director, and attend monthly meetings.
To be successful, we ask that you focus your prayer and spiritual activity on the Spiritual Exercises for the nine months that you participate. This means you set aside any activities, prayers, rubrics, and habits you already practice that might interfere with your commitment to the Spiritual Exercises.
At the end of the retreat, you can return to prior methods of prayer. By then you will have a whole new set of tools, including how to discern God's will for your life, with which to proceed.
The Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life is a powerful program that takes time and commitment. You will deepen your love for God- the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as you pray. You will grow in love for Jesus.
If you are interested in growing closer to Christ, deepening your prayer life, and/or discussing your faith life with a spiritual director, then the Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life (SEEL Tri-Cities) could be for you. Those who complete the Spiritual Exercises say they are changed for life!
