Event:AGING AS A NATURAL MONASTERY: A TIME FOR "CONTEMPLAGEING"
Date:December 7th-9th, 2018.
Category/Categories:Christian / Catholic
Spirituality of Aging

Researchers and writers often underscore the spiritual opportunities associated with aging. Some have called aging a “natural monastery,” a time permeated by “everyday mysticism,” a time when the losses and diminishments that occur “clear away the obstacles to experiencing and appreciating each moment with its own special beauty and/or pain.”

Aging is a time for “ContemplAgeing,” that is an entering into the sacred space of the unique circumstances of your own aging in a contemplative way.

During this retreat, through reflection and prayer we will view aging from these perspectives, envisioning it as a time to (1) enhance spiritual growth, (2) deepen spiritual life and practice, and (3) expand the fullness of life.

Try living one day without any unhealthy thoughts. It may be very difficult, but try another day, until it becomes habitual, and life will move in the direction of becoming healthy, vital, and alive.
