Your Feedback

We are glad you have been with us at our latest Cloister Seminars retreat. Here is your chance to give us some feedback about your experience and to help us shape the program for the future. 

This evaluation also offers you the opportunity to look back on your own experience. It does not need private information, just an overview or hint of what changes, inputs, insights you gained during your participation. We will keep all your information absolutely private. Your submitted form cannot be seen by anyone else and is safer than sending an email.  You do not need to tell us your name or contact information, but doing so would allow to ask you a followup question based on your comments.

Feel free to answer as briefly or lengthily as you wish or to skip a question.

Thank you so much! 

What do you think about the overall structure / schedule / group / topics of the retreat?
Did you find the retreat place a helpful and conducive setting? Was embedding the cloister retreat in the life of the monastery helpful?
Do you think different about the retreat theme than you did before the retreat? If so, how?
Did you get enough overview and detail about Hildegard’s life and work / about Benedictine spirituality?
What was the most helpful part / aspect / practice for your own journey? (You can list more than one.) Give us some clues why if you can.
Please think about your retreat leaders. What strengths should they build on? What attitudes, skills, or ways of being did you find most helpful for your own experience? Do you have any advice?
Which topics for future seminars and retreats would you like to see come up? Which themes of the last retreat would you like to deepen? Can you think of a regular series you would like to attend to deepen certain topics or practices?
If you like you can share some of your personal experiences during the retreat (e.g. how the practices influenced your own journey).
Would you like to share 1-3 sentences of your experience with the public which we could post as endorsement on our website (with or without your name / initials)? If you would like to do so you can write your text here. Thank you so much.

Again, thank you!
