River

Down To The River Retreats

Down To The River is a day retreat experience for women who long to have time set apart for rest, silence, and renewal for weary souls.

Retreats are held in a comfortable home setting nestled between the majestic 450-million-year-old Palisades and the Kentucky River, located just seven miles from Wilmore, KY.
 
Individual spiritual direction is part of the retreat package. For those not familiar with this ancient practice, it can be defined as:

“Help given by one Christian to another which enables that person to pay attention to God’s personal communication to him or her, to respond to this personally communicating God, to grow in intimacy with this God, and to live out the consequences of the relationship.” (William A. Barry and William J. Connolly, The Practice of Spiritual Direction)

Hospitality and care are provided by Kathy Milans, Kentucky Licensed Pastoral Counselor/Registered Play Therapist/Supervisor and Spiritual Director. To see more about Kathy, go to:: http://www.pathoflifeministry.org.
