Retreats

An escape in the Black Forest

Retreats to meet your needs

Whether you’re seeking a space to retreat for yourself or a group, there is spiritual sanctuary here in the Black Forest. Two large, well-appointed retreat houses await you, with handicap, single and double room options. Use the space just for the day or extend your stay here at Benet Hill. We have meeting spaces for groups and meals in the monastery dining room for those who would rather not cook while on retreat. 

Upon request, we also offer transportation to/from the monastery, massage, spiritual direction for a guided retreat, or healing energy work. 

For individuals who wish to go deeper, there is a five-day guided retreat option and, in certain situations, a longer guided retreat is available.

Guided retreats

For some individuals, time spent in quiet contemplation and with a Benedictine spiritual director changes everything.

Guided retreats are perfect if:

In solitude or communion

Individual and group retreats
