At GilChrist, we love a hearty gathering, filled with deep sharing and meaningful connections. A lot can happen when people get together for a day or a weekend or a week, and we're glad to be a part of it.

Our 2023 group retreat schedule is now live and ready for you to peruse. We’ve been working with facilitators as they craft experiences in a wide range of topics, like art, yoga, grief, energy fields, and more (there’s even one for elementary school teachers). Check back as we add more group retreats to the schedule!

Not a group-retreat kind of person? We reserve at least one weekend per month for individual guests to experience unstructured, self-guided retreats. We've posted those weekends on the calendar, and we also have availability on weekdays and for longer periods of time.
