Work and Prayer: A Retreat at River Place Tree Farm

Ready to experience Benedict’s essential rhythm of discipleship? This hands-on retreat offers participants the unique and personal opportunity to slip into the woods of Southeast Minnesota and experience the riches of River Place Tree Farm—a natural place to work, rest, and pray. Learn how to identify and treat buckthorn, even while exploring how to integrate prayer and lectio divina into our daily lives and spiritual practice. The smell of cedars, melodies of bird song, and hum of the river included at no charge.

Guided by Samuel Rahberg, spiritual director and owner of River Place. Up to five guests. For more information, email
