The word “Numinous” refers to an encounter with God. On this weekend retreat, we go out to a “lonely place” in search of that experience. We learn and practice the ancient Christian devotion called “lectio devina,” meditation on the Word of God. We get to know each other better through team-building and icebreakers, and build community around prayer and Eucharist. Locations vary, but it’s usually far away from traffic and other distractions. Cost is usually about $20, covering both food and lodging.
