Saturday, June 15, 2019

9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Rev. Matthew Wright

This enriching day of contemplative retreat, prayer, teaching and community promotes going deeper into contemplative union with God and with one another.

We will explore ways of moving beyond a Christianity understood primarily as belief system, and instead will engage our principal doctrines of Trinity and Incarnation as participatory mysteries that Christ calls us to enter. We'll give attention to the "unitive" or "nondual" dimension of Christian faith, the recovery of heart-centered Christian contemplative practice, and pioneering Christian voices such as Teilhard de Chardin and Raimon Panikkar.


Offering: $45 (includes lunch)
