Humans were not designed to live out of a place of around-the-clock activity and stimulation. Consequences of such lifestyles inundate our news feeds. At some point, each of us needs to hit the pause and reset button. Retreats serve as one way to disconnect in order to reconnect.
Scheduling for periods of silence, solitude, and stillness helps create space and time to disconnect. Silence disconnects us from the never-ending noise of our culture; solitude disconnects us from the plethora of distractions; and stillness disconnects us from the hurried pace of life. When we disconnect from everyday we are able to reconnect with God, ourselves, creation, and eventually others.
Vacare Deo Retreat Space offers a quiet space to do just that - disconnect. Located close to North Table Mesa, Vacare Deo encompasses over an acre of land surrounded by open space which tucks up next to Hyatt Lake. A walking path around the lake offers views of the Front Range from Table Mesa to north of Long's Peak, wildlife, and mountain reflections. Sunsets can be breathtaking.

The is a contemplative in all of us
Almost strangled but still alive,
Which yearns to reach out the seamless garment of silence
Which makes whole. - Alan Tory
