Discernment retreats

Anyone know of any interesting non-cloistered religious orders around California? I need to go to more retreats of different orders, to confirm that the one I went to wasn't just a retreat high (I loved it I loved it). I need to visit more, for comparison purposes.

I appreciate it, thanks!

The Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus have a provine in La Mesa, CA
The Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles ( They look awesome! Both of these are active.

Check out Insitute of Religious Life (voc search) for more (
OR check out Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious (

Hope that helps some!
Wow thanks!

And do you update much? You seemed to have been discerning for a long time.. wow you've visited a lot of orders. Can I add you? It'd be nice to have a discerning friend... although my own discerning process is a little dramatic and messy, heh.
