Kansas Sanctuaries, Retreats, and Sacred Places

Updated on January 15, 2015

Renew Your Spirit At A Kansas Retreat Center

I love going to Sanctuaries, Retreats, and Sacred Places. Do you need a break from the demands and pressures of daily life? Spending a weekend, a few days, or even just an hour away from the world may be exactly what you need to renew your spirit. Going on spiritual journeys and retreats is not new--people have been going on pilgrimages and journeying to sacred shrines for centuries.

This lens is for the purpose of listing and finding retreat centers in the State of Kansas.

      Most of rural Kansas is a retreat center for me. Even my husband, born and raised in the glorious mountains of Kentucky, finds peace and beauty in Kansas. Yes, I love this lens.

      Having lived in KS for many years I know of many of these places. The nuns at the Manna House of Prayer in Concordia have a prayer list and prayed for us when I had trouble having children. After three children, I asked my husband if he had ever cancelled the order. I've been to rituals at the Gaea Retreat Center several times. And my son would stop at the Benedictine Monastery in Atchison on his way home from seminary.

      I love to get together with my sisters at one of these places. We could catch up on each other's lives and do some bonding.

      One of my favourite retreat areas in Kansas is up near Leavenworth. The Gaia Retreat Center in McLouth, Kansas hosts the annual Heartland Pagan Festival. I used to love going there. It was so peaceful and such a spiritually cleansing place.
