In addition to our core programs, Contemplative Pathways also offers retreat experiences from time to time.  These retreats provide an opportunity to nurture community and the contemplative way of life.

In the Stillness, Dance – A Silent Retreat

In order to understand the dance, one must be still.  
And in order to truly understand stillness one must dance.”

September 29th – October 2nd, 2021
Location: Tatamagouche Centre

Begins Wednesday at 3:00 pm, ending at 1:30 pm on Saturday.

  • Are you longing to reconnect with the movement and colour of your interior life?
  • To rest and reflect on and re-engage with the wonder of life?
  • To spend a few days in a beautiful setting, cared for and supported, while letting silence restore your rhythm and perspective?

This retreat offers stillness, and silence, punctuated with small invitations to limber your inner life.  It opens a great spacious quiet in which you may rest and simply BE.

Meet the team:

Catherine Smith is nurtured in contemplative life and loves its silence, its words, and the practices that bring us to stillness.  She loves to encourage contemplative openness through small gatherings and in congregational life.  Catherine is a graduate of the Shalem Institute, in Leading Contemplative Prayer Groups and Retreats.

Fay Cameron enjoys the quiet spaciousness and restoration of silent retreat.  She welcomes the insights and wisdom that are often revealed in quietude.  Fay is a graduate of the Atlantic Jubilee Program (AJP) in Spiritual Deepening and Spiritual Guidance.
