Learn, practice, and connect in the company of others—and find companionship and guidance along the way—with our guided half-day retreat for doing a Yearly Examen.

Our retreat will include an introduction and teaching for any who may be new to the practice (or who would appreciate a refresher or a new perspective). The center portion of the retreat will be spent in prayer and practice alone. The last part of our time together will be to re-gather for reflection, questions, workshopping, and further connection. Participants will receive an email each week with a Zoom link to join the group. Each retreat date is a stand-alone invitation to join an intimate group of 10.

No experience is needed to join a guided retreat! Beginners and long-time practitioners alike will benefit from the intentional time spent in shared practice.

  • Yearly Examen - The practice of doing a yearly examen at the beginning of each liturgical year, on an anniversary or birthday, or on some meaningful occasion has been such a gift in my life. The prayer of examen is a centuries-old practice that invites us to reflect on our days prayerfully in the presence of God. Rather than a formula to memorize, it is a form of prayer based on a series of five movements drawing you through presence, reflection, awareness, faithfulness, and ultimately, hopeful action. Led by Jenn Giles Kemper, this retreat will cultivate an awareness of God's work in our daily lives over the past year and move forward toward the coming year in a spirit of hope. 

Retreat Length: 4 hours

    Half-day Online Retreat: each guided retreat will gather via Zoom for one hour at 11 am central, sending retreat makers off for two hours, and gathering again for one hour at 2 pm central with info and meeting links delivered ahead of time via email. We will also provide some recommendations for how to choose where you will make retreat, whether at home, at your church, at a retreat center, or anywhere that you can connect to the internet.

      What types of shipping services do you offer?

      We are thrilled to ship to the US and around the world. We offer Media Mail and Priority Mail via the United States Postal Service and other similar services. All orders are processed in the order they were received. All USPS shipping fees are based on our costs to ship to you and may shift ever-so-slightly from day-to-day, as they update in real time. 

      First Class International shipping prices range from $25-$40 USD and depend on the destination. International customers may also be charged an additional tariff fee when retrieving their packages from post offices. We are unable to include it in the cost of your item and shipping currently. We understand international shipping is a bit more expensive. We hope to have more international options as our volume increases, but in the meantime placing a group order with your friends will reduce the international cost and give you a group discount!

      How quickly will my order ship?

      Digital products are automatically sent by email shortly after you place your order. Physical products are shipped from our warehouse in Waco, TX every weekday afternoon. You'll receive an email with tracking information when your order is shipped.

      Can I change my shipping address, email or payment info?

      Because our orders ship daily, we may not be able to change your information before your order is processed and shipped. For that reason, please verify your shipping address at checkout before submitting your order. If you find an error, contact us as soon as possible and we will try our hardest to make corrections before the order goes out. We try to check email for any shipping-related updates before printing labels.

      What is your return policy?

      We do our best to describe and depict each product with great care and detail. For that reason we created the FREE Essentials Workbook to give you a closer look at the design of our planner. The Essentials Workbook will help you evaluate if our product is a good fit for you before you spend any money. You can often purchase digital sample months of the planners to try before you buy. Our planner isn't a perfect fit for everyone, though. We haven't set out to be. It's not possible! That said, let us know if you find an issue and we will do our best to make it right.

      If your physical product is damaged or defective, or you receive the wrong product, please contact us with your name, order number, and nature of the issue at hello@sacredordinarydays.com and we will address your concern as quickly as possible.
