The 30-Day and 8-Day Retreats of Silence
Opportunities for completion of the 30-Day Spiritual Exercises are offered at the Jesuit Retreat Center in Los Altos, California. This is the original form of the Exercises shaped by St. Ignatius of Loyola. The retreat involves a month of prayer in silence with 4-5 prayer sessions each day and daily spiritual direction.
Shorter 8 Day Retreats of Silence are also offered by the Jesuit Retreat Center. While not as extensive in the experience of the Exercises, the shorter retreat builds on many of the meditations and reflections of the longer version (20th Annotation) of the Spiritual Exercises.
Priests of the diocese interested in making the 8-Day Silent Retreat are encouraged to speak to the CIS Director.
