Types of retreats

Directed Retreat

This is a uniquely personal experience in which the retreatant is afforded the time, silence, and direction to come in touch with his/her personal relationship with God. There is a daily meeting with a director focusing on the totality of the day’s experience and discerning the movements of the Spirit in the retreatant.

Guided Retreat

In an atmosphere of quiet and solitude, a theme is developed and presented to a group through daily conferences. Suggestions for personal reflection are offered. Guided prayer and/or shared prayer experiences are offered to the retreatants as well as the opportunity to meet with the director.

Hermitage Experience

Cormaria offers two Hermitage experiences – a place where you can experience God in prayer and contemplation.
Amidst the sea breezes, the sound of seagulls, and the lapping water, Cormaria offers a hermitage experience. The hermitage is a small building located at the end of the property. It has two separate units with kitchen facilities where you prepare your own meals. It is a place for people to be still and be re-created as they spend time in solitude with their God.
