Long Summer Retreat


  • The Retreat & Conference Center at DeKoven 600 21st Street Racine, WI, 53403 United States (map)

“Jesus: Cosmic Guru of the West,” will be the focus of the DeKoven Center’s 2018 Long Summer Retreat.

The Rev. Brian Hastings will return to lead the retreat, which runs from 5 p.m. Sunday, June 24, to 10 a.m. Thursday, June 28, in Taylor Hall, on the DeKoven Center grounds, 600 21st St., Racine, WI. 

All are invited to join us for what is sure to be a reflective and refreshing week. Rev. Hastings will help us experience the generally-unexplored, but thoroughly authentic and biblically evident, mystical Jesus, whose mission is to induct a radical transformation within his disciples.

Stilling the heart and mind are practices that help us open up to the transforming energy of the living Jesus. Therefore, the DeKoven summer retreat maintains an atmosphere of quiet. Participants should come prepared to spend time with Guru Jesus, rather than with each other. Only essential conversation occurs outside sessions. Those participants who want an introduction to Rev. Hastings’ thoughts on “Jesus: Cosmic Guru of the West,” are encouraged to read the book “Wisdom Jesus,” by Cynthia Bourgeault.  

The retreat begins with a welcome reception, followed by dinner, at 5:00 pm on Sunday, June 24th, and goes through breakfast on Thursday morning, June 28th. The all-inclusive cost of the program (including lodging and meals) is $350.
