Give the Gift of Renewal 

There is a place in us that longs for stillness and quiet in this time of waiting for the light to return, yet this is often an overwhelmingly busy season that allows little time for the renewal we desire.

If you, or someone you know is longing for a space where time runs at a different pace, then consider a retreat at Touchstone, located in Sandy Bay, Manitoba on the East Shore of Lake Winnipeg.

Touchstone: More than a place

This beautiful home has an oversized fireplace, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the forest and walking access to the lake.  There is a space for art and writing and a large collection of spiritual books and magazines available for your use.

All retreats include a Private Room, linens and towels, three simple meals served daily with complimentary snacks, tea and coffee available 24 hours.  There is also fridge and freezer space available for those who may want to bring some of their own food.

Retreats purchased as gifts will be accompanied by a handpainted card with the information required for the recipient to book their stay at a time of their choosing.

Touchstone Retreats:

Living the Hours – A Contemplative Retreat on the Seasons of the DayLiving the Hours Retreats

For anyone in need of space and quiet, and who desires to enter the NOW.

One Friday a month we will meet to hone our skills in listening intently and consciously to the message of the moment – a universal call to be present to what IS.

You will be invited to a different relationship with time than our usual distracted, multitasking busyness. This is a break from chronological time, and an entering into hourly time – traditionally called the “hours” from the Greek ‘hora,’ meaning a soul measure, a mood, or an experience.

Each Friday we will explore a different ‘hour’, its call and response, and the season of our day. Read more….
