Spiritual Enrichment

Friday supper to Sunday lunch 

"...four steps of the soul came into my reflection: reading, meditation, prayer, contemplation.  This is a ladder for monks by means of which they are raised up from earth to heaven...for its lower part stands on the earth, while its higher (part) pierces the clouds and touches the secrets of heaven."  Guigo, Ladder of the Monks

Bask in sacred sensory experiences of beauty, compassion, inspiration,and joy and allow their echos to deepen within. During this weekend we will experience Lectio Divina through reading scripture and poetry; Visio Divina through Icon gazing and video; Audio Divina through music, chant and movement; and Vita Divina, awareness of God’s movement in your life, all supported by Contemplative Prayer practice and delicious meals. Our process will include journaling or creative expression with color on paper, and sharing among the group. This is an experiential and participatory experience with ample opportunities for personal time and rest.

Begins Friday with supper at 6:00pm and concludes with lunch at noon on Sunday. Fee: Resident with private room, $295; Semi-private room, $270; Commuter with meals, $210; Commuter without  meals, $175.  Deposit $100.  Balance due 14 days prior to start of program.

Faith makes all things possible, and love makes them easy. Faith in God is never out of season. Faith justifies the believer, but love justifies his faith by the works which it produces. Faith believes God to be true; love proves faith to be true.
- Charles H. Spurgeon
