We stayed 10 days with a group of 26 participants in the small and intense living & praying Jezuit community (5-6) of the Haus Gries. Our silent days consisted more or less of 4-5 hours of contemplative prayer/meditation, 1 hour of community work, 2-3 hours of walking in nature, 1/2 hour of daily talk with our spiritual counselor, a daily eucharisty and intention, vegetarian meals and sleep in a separate cell/hut. All in silence and submerged in our own process.
It was a challenging and deep source of inspiration. These photos are the best way to give you a taste of it.
