Our online retreats invite you for a time of spiritual reflection and renewal at your own home and in your daily life.
Our speakers which are usually members or friends of L’Arche have strong connections to the life in our communities, many of them having been assistants themselves.
The retreats are open to all and mostly joined by members and friends of L’Arche and Faith & Light from around the world, sometimes from all continents. Therefore, our talks are prerecorded and are available during the retreat 24/7. In this way each participant can find the best time during the day when to follow the retreat. The setting in daily life and your own home can be a challenge as you will have to gift yourself the time every day necessary to follow the retreat during the week. At the same time, you are inviting God for this week in a special way into your home and ordinary life. This is very different from going away for a week and leaving everything behind. In some ways, this can and has become for many a very special blessing.
All of our retreats can be followed on an individual basis. For many retreats we connect participants with others (in their communities or time zone) in sharing groups. For other retreats we propose a prayer or sharing partner, which can be from a different continent. These partners teamed for the week are encouraged to pray for (and share with each other) during the retreat.
These retreats have since July 2020 attracted more than 1000 participants from more than 50 countries on all continents.
👈 If you would like to discover what our online retreats look like, here’s one example that we made available for everyone. It is the very first talk of our recent online retreat entitled “Extra-ordinary Times : the Healing Journey of Meditation”. The talk is given by Hazel Bradley. Enjoy, and tell us what you think of it.
