Resources

One of the best ways to enhance your spiritual life is to attend retreats.  They range from a few hours to 30 days in length.  Below are the websites of Retreat Houses I have attended both for short programs and longer retreats.  I recommend that you browse their websites for programs, retreats, reflections, reading lists. Retreat houses are also a great source for referral to Spiritual Directors.
