Abstract
This project discovered components of the Pursuit of Wholeness Retreats that nurtured spiritual transformation in a group of women participants from Grand Rapids, Michigan. A post-test evaluated participant experiences and the impact of seven different components on participant spiritual transformation. Results showed that prominent spiritual transformation occurred on the retreats. Of the seven components assessed, the Rime of Silence with God had the greatest impact. The second greatest impact on spiritual transformation was community.
