Registration deadline is Friday, Oct. 14 at noon

Format: This retreat will be lightly structured with some periodic guidance given, but the vast majority will be silent. Please bring your own lunch. 


We live in a noisy world that’s getting noisier all the time.  Extended times of silence can help balance the noise in a healthy way. The day will be lightly structured and some periodic guidance given but the vast majority of time will be silent. Presenter Carl Nordgren will be available to model silence and for short individual questions about your own silent experience. There will be a  few concluding thoughts but we will end the day in silence and you will be free to take your silent experience home with you. No previous experience with silence is necessary. 


Presenter: Carl Nordgren is a retired airline pilot, retired Christos Board President and designer/builder of Christos’s labyrinth, bridge and other projects. He now lives with his wife in a quiet oasis Up North in Minnesota. He practices silence as a spiritual discipline and intentionally incorporates silence into his life. He actively pursues silent sport, silent creative activity, and silent time with his wife.
