• About the Hosea Retreats •

“Holy Spirit, breath of God,

come and light a fire of love,

love that welcomes truth and kindness,

love revealing God’s embrace of all.”

 Retreat Cancelled for 2018

Gregory Norbet invites you to attend the annual Hosea Mountain Retreat each October at the Landgrove Inn, Landgrove, Vermont.  Gregory and Kathryn will provide conferences and prayer for this weekend designed for spiritual deepening and uplifting of the spirit.  A former Benedictine monk for 21 years, Gregory is a well-known composer, performer and retreat presenter.  Many of his songs, such as Hosea (Come Back to Me), All I Ask of You and Wherever You Go have become classics whose reach extends beyond borders of race, religion and nationality. (View these on YouTube.) .

Come, be a part of an endeavor of grace sure to refresh and heal body and soul. Come to be renewed spiritually, and take some time to be uplifted and inspired with the beauty of the autumn foliage in the Green Mountains of Vermont.  “Coming home” to be a part of this retreat may just be the nourishing and enduring soulful experience you’ve been looking for. 


   A retreat is a pilgrimage of the heart, a journey to an environment of beauty, peace, and tranquility in which to realize more fully God’s love for us.  It can be very healing and reaffirming to step away from the routine concerns and anxieties of everyday life in order to set time aside to listen for the movement of the Spirit in our lives.  The Hosea Retreats in Southern Vermont offer a unique environment for those in search of much needed rest and inspiration for body and soul.  Since 1990, Gregory Norbet and Kathryn Carrington have presented these retreats of spiritual deepening and Christian discipleship each year at the Landgrove Inn, in Landgrove, Vermont.

   We invite you to attend this year’s Hosea Retreat.  Nestled along a country road in the Green Mountain National Forest not far the Benedictine Monastery of Weston Priory, the Inn is renowned for its New England farmhouse charm, its verdant setting and its gracious hospitality. A new post and beam Meeting House at pond’s edge provides a unique setting for the Hosea Retreat conferences and times of prayer.

   Over the years participants have come from all over the US and Canada.  May we suggest you make your reservation early due to the popularity of the Hosea Retreats.  We so look forward to welcoming you with great joy!  We will pray for you as you “Go Up To The Mountains” of joy.
