2018 Retreats

December 15-16, 2018      Follow The Star: An Advent Retreat follow the star jpg
10 am Saturday – 11:30 am Sunday at St. Benedict Center
What does it mean for our spiritual journey to “go home another way?” How, as travelers, are we called  to “follow the star?” Although counter-cultural, following the Light is the truest map of our journey.  Mindful of those who traveled to welcome the Christ child, we will explore our own spiritual journey using guided and walking meditation, images, and creativity to create and pray with SoulCollage® cards. If you have cards or images that resonate with you, please bring them. Opportunities for sessions of SoulCollage® creativity, group card reflection and reading; Mass and prayers with the monks; visiting nativity scenes from around the world and, of course, stillness.

$150 includes ONE NIGHT of single room, 3 meals, program fee, creativity supplies and sales tax. Arrangements can be made for an additional night if needed. $50 deposit due by November 25. Call 402-432-9479 or jodigehr@gmail.com­­­

What do people say about SoulFully You retreats?523858_4109421664231_1712714311_n

“My take away from this retreat: I never thought about using my artistic talent to express and discover what it brings out spiritually. And I certainly didn’t think about it as a way to deepen my relationship with God. It was the perfect experience for me to have and I will definitely continue with Soul Collage.”~Sandra Renner, Prairie Healer blog

“Loved this weekend. It was everything I hoped it would be when I signed up for it. Beautiful facility (St. Benedict Center), warm, peaceful, soulful.”

“I feel that it’s really inspired me to create again. I’m so afraid of making a mistake and I realized you just have to do it because you never know where your creation will go–it takes a life of its own anyway.”


“Jodi was wonderful. She certainly is an excellent director. Keep her coming back for more retreats.”

“This retreat exceeded my expectations. I loved the creative aspects.”

“(Jodi has) a gift for presenting and sharing and also a gift for bringing spiritual things to people in a very practical way. I have been working on some collages myself and enjoying it immensely! It seems to be a good way for me to express myself and enter into a prayerful mode. It is relaxing and freeing. I am usually a perfectionist when it comes to art and creativity, but I seem to be able to “let go” with this form of expression, and that is a really good thing for me.”~Denise Lopez

“As a first retreat, this was an exceptional experience. Affirmative of different ways to pray, to connection, to finding ways to gratitude, to visual express of contemplation.”

“Profound perspectives to consider and try. Loved the retreat—brava.”

“Jodi did an awesome job! She introduced and let us practice a variety of different ways to pray. She helped me to see that somethings I do are actually a form of prayer. My awareness of what prayer can be has been expanded.”

“This was a truly excellent workshop. I feel blessed to have found the SBC. I loved the discussion and especially the hands-on activities facilitated by our presenter.”
