Changing Your Life Through Solitude - Annual Silent Retreat

Join us for an Experience members have called ‘sacred,’ ‘powerful,’ and ‘a mandatory annual exercise for all Chief Executives.’

Centuries back, Pascal observed that 'the fundamental problem of a person is never learning to be alone.' Join PathNorth on a journey of reflection, contemplation, and solitude in an expansive farmland at the Holy Cross Abbey in Berryville, Virginia. Experience the transformative power of silence silhouetted by the Blue Ridge Mountains, the sound of monastic chants, and the presence of 15 other PathNorth friends along for the journey.

Step outside of your comfort zone, take a modest risk, leave your technology behind, and embark on an experience of silence all too rare in our modern lives.  It just might be the transformative moment you have been seeking. No past experience required.  

We are almost at capacity for the Silent Retreat. If you are interested in attending, please contact Gloria at
