Centering Prayer and the Heart of Mysticism


Contemplative Advent Retreat

December 7-9, 2018

Therese Saulnier

What is Mysticism? Does it Really Matter? The pursuit of spirituality can evolve our consciousness, expanding our understanding of reality and opening us to see things differently. Knowledge of mysticism is a doorway to this evolution of our consciousness. In this retreat, we’ll explore mystical writers and the nature and impact of mysticism in deepening our relationship with God and transforming our everyday lives. This retreat is intended for people with a regular practice of Centering Prayer or meditative practice.

This event is co-sponsored with Copper Beech Institute.

Offering: $375
