Books, Days of Advent, Seasons


In gratitude for all the blessing prayers that I frequently post on In Silence Waits, I am sharing information about an advent retreat that Jan Richardson is offering from December 1, 2018 to December 28, 2018.

Retreat Details

ILLUMINATED 2018 is an elegantly simple online journey toward Christmas that you can enter into from anywhere you are, in the way that works best for you.

This online retreat is not about adding one more thing to your holiday schedule. It is about helping you find spaces for reflection that draw you deep into this season that shimmers with mystery and possibility.


Jan Richardson’s Advent Books

Through the Advent Door:
Entering a Contemplative Christmas

Through the Advent Door reveals the hidden pathways into the holidays we have always longed for, guiding us into a realm that shimmers with mystery and imagination. Like an Advent calendar, each day opens a new door, offering rich treasures that beckon us deep into this sacred season.

Night Visions: Searching the Shadows
of Advent and Christmas

Jan’s original artwork, reflections, poetry, and prayers accompany the reader from the first days of Advent through the Feast of the Epiphany, beckoning us to encounter the God who dwells in darkness as well as in daylight.
