Christian Mystics Silent Retreat

Come for a Prayer Stay at our La Casa de Milagros in Mexico

Take a Break from the World

Step back and retreat into God's Love at our monastic center for Christian mysticism, "La Casa de Milagros" in Chapala, Mexico. Our Prayer Stays offer a devotional environment for you to reflect, meditate, and connect with Jesus inwardly.

What is a Prayer Stay?

A Prayer Stay is a silent retreat for Christian mystics in an environment dedicated to living the mystical teachings of Jesus. Enjoy the singing of the birds in the garden, feel the Love that surrounds you, and listen to the small, still Voice within. If you feel so Called, please fill out our application below, and we will reach out to you for an interview to help us determine whether a Prayer Stay would be truly beneficial for you here at our Christian mysticism retreat center.

“Wake-Up Weekends”

We invite you to join us for a Christian silent retreat weekend in which we will also be offering an online Awakening event. These “Wake-Up Weekends” are the same price as regular Prayer Stays but with the added bonus of free teachings. Here are the two types of “Wake-Up Weekends” we currently offer:

  1. Saturday All-Day Movie-Workshops – broadcast live into our meeting room at La Casa de Milagros each Saturday, these workshops go from 10am until about 4pm.*
    Learn more about our Movie Workshops here!


  2. Monthly "Heart of Christ" Online Retreats—broadcast live at La Casa de Milagros on the first full weekend of every month, these monthly “Heart of Christ” retreats go very deep into the practical application of the mystical teachings of Jesus. They begin at 10am on the Friday (see calendar schedule here) and end around 12noon on the Sunday.**

* Attending the All-Day Movie Workshop requires at least a two-night Prayer Stay, Friday to Sunday.
** Attending the online retreat requires at least a three-night Prayer Stay, Thursday to Sunday. Since the retreats usually end after 12pm on Sunday, we’ll allow you to have a late check-out of 12:30pm. As an added option, you can join us for the 1pm lunch for an extra 200 pesos.

During Your Silent Retreat

There are four private rooms (for a single person or a couple), as well as shared bunk rooms (a men’s and a women’s). All rooms are fully equipped with linens and towels, and all have access to a shared kitchen and laundry facilities. Depending on which room type you’ve chosen in your application (private or shared), you will be assigned a specific room based on availability at that time.

Meals & Kitchen

Each day at 1:00 p.m., a simple, shared lunch meal will be served for our residents and any guests staying with us. This is the only meal included in the cost of your Prayer Stay, but you can bring/purchase your own food locally. There is a supermarket within walking distance, several restaurants nearby, and you  will have access to a fully-equipped, shared kitchen during your stay.
