The Clearing, Door County
"The Clearing's natural setting, secluded cluster of rustic buildings, and program topics are conducive to clearing one's mind and coming to a better understanding of nature and one's own place in the world." Located in Door County. Non-sectarian.

Bridge Between, Denmark
A very comfortable and close to nature location. Simple, intimate surroundings. Not very large and space can fill quickly so call ahead. A nice change from the look and feel of the "larger" retreat centers.

Jesuit Retreat House, Oshkosh
Wonderful location and guidance. Not surprisingly emphasizes Ignatian spirituality but also offers a variety of programs.

St. Norbert Abbey, De Pere
A more urban location but beautiful building and grounds make it very conducive to prayer and reflection. Opportunity to share in prayer life of the local Norbertine Community.

St. Benedict Retreat Center, Benet Lake
This is a site for the Benedictine Abbey but it is also the location for an older but well kept and serene retreat house that reflects its Benedictine Heritage.

Wisconsin retreats
A pretty good listing of retreat centers in Wisconsin. Various kinds. No links but addresses and phone numbers. You can get an idea of the focus of some from titles.

Online Retreats

No time to get away? Here's a "high tech" alternative that might help. No alternative for the real thing but sometimes anything helps!

Online Retreat
a 34 week retreat for onself or a group with opportunity to post reflections and receive replies.
