Most retreats here at the Mount Olivet Conference & Retreat Center are held by private groups such as church and non-profit organizations. From time to time, we are privileged to host a number of events each year that are open to the public. As a courtesy, we offer this partial listing. As new events are booked and leaders provide retreat descriptions, we will update the list accordingly.

Please contact the retreat organizer directly for questions regarding cost, program content, and registration.

Courage & Renewal: A Seasonal Retreat Series for Personal and Professional Renewal

At this Courage & Renewal retreat series you'll discover a unique kind of professional and personal development - one that deepens your self-awareness and renews your energy to live and lead with authenticity, integrity and courage. At a retreat, carefully prepared facilitators create a safe space for self-reflection and shared exploration. Unlike most professional development programs, this allows for the deep inner work that nurtures your heart and soul. Participants register for the entire series, which includes four seasonal retreats.

Reflective Writing Process for Personal/Spiritual Growth Begins July 8th, 2017                                                                                     

Learn a unique way to gain insights and perspectives about your life using an integrated system of writing exercises that is called the Progoff Intensive Journal® program.  You can develop understanding about relationships, career/interests, body and health, dreams and imagery, spirituality, etc. Our certified instructor guides you step-by-step through the exercises as you apply them to your life working in total privacy.  The program is a deepening experience, away from your daily routine, as you connect with your inner process.  You don’t have to like to write.  Take 1, 2 or 3 workshops. Each is 2 days-12 hours in length (July 5-15).   

Created by Ira Progoff, PhD, the Intensive Journal program is offered since 1966 and  taught internationally by certified instructors.  CEUs available.
