Nawakwa Retreat Center in Biglerville, PA. (near Gettysburg)

A Weekend with Thomas Merton: A Light Shining in the Darkness

Retreat Director: Dr. Monica Weiss, SSJ

During the retreat we will take time to discover how:
Thomas Merton can inspire us to be light in the darkness;
The land gave Thomas Merton a sense of “home;”
Merton’s love of nature transformed his prayer;
Merton’s interest in Celtic spirituality can help us make time for solitude;

Peaceful, Spiritual, Community Building, and Fun!
