Stillpoint: The Spiritual Journey July 26-August 2

Be Still. Listen. The Spiritual Journey, Spiritual Direction Training at Ghost Ranch creates time and space to be still, listen, and cultivate deeper meaning in your life.

Monday, July 26 – Monday, August 2, 2021

Sometimes we need a place to catch up with our souls’ yearning. A place to stop and linger to deeply listen. To hear with the ear of our heart, what our life wants us to know. Such opportunities allow us to reconnect with God and our own inner wisdom so we can see more clearly the path that is beckoning us.

The Spiritual Journey at Ghost Ranch creates the much-needed time and space for you to be still, listen, and cultivate deeper meaning and Sabbath in your life under the guidance of Stillpoint’s seasoned staff and in the community of other seekers. Guided contemplative experiences, time for solitude in nature, shared wisdom and journeys are components to help us restore our souls and rest deeply. Participants are grateful for the friendships that are kindled in the closeness of the small group experience. This retreat takes place at Casa del Sol, away from the main ranch, which provides quiet and safe space for work that engages spirit and focus, dedicated to deep spiritual and artistic contemplation.

Accept this invitation to take time for yourself for spiritual nourishment, all within an ancient landscape celebrating God’s creation and sacred community. Come just for Journey or continue with our two-year The Art of Spiritual Direction training program.

What day/time does the workshop start and end?

In-person workshops begin with check-in at 3:00 p.m. and a ranch orientation in the evening on the first date listed for the course and end at 10:00 a.m. with checkout on the last date listed.

Virtual workshops will have a varied schedule that is identified within each workshop description.

During Covid safety period - single occupancy lodging is the standard
  • During Covid-19 periods, all lodging types will be single occupancy at no additional charge. Of course, you can share a room with a spouse, partner, family or another person that shares your full-time residence. The extra folks that share a room will pay for workshop registration fees and meals.
What is the difference between a room with private bath, a room with semi-private or shared bath, and a room with communal/dorm bath?

Private bath refers to the type of bathroom, not single occupancy

Private Bath Room: There is a bathroom in that one room that is not shared between or with any other rooms. The highest rate tier of Ghost Ranch lodging.

Semi-private/shared: There is a bathroom between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two adjoining sleeping rooms. These rooms will only be used as family or group suites, not to be shared by unknown neighbors as in the past.

Communal/dorm: There is a communal bathroom/shower in the lodging building and participants will need to exit their room to reach these facilities.
