Inner Transformation: Creating a Spiritual Path for the Times in Which We Live.
Spiritual longing and curiosity are part of being human. People nourish their spiritual lives in many different ways. How do you connect your life with this longing? How can we understand that we are accompanied by love and connected to all things?
This retreat will examine Christianity as a path of inner transformation. Matthew Wright draws on re-emerging Christian teachings, including historic writings of The Gospel of Thomas. He will introduce the thought of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and other more recent thinkers to ground the truth of this vision in theology and science. We will have time for practices and quiet during the day as we search to be centered in these changing times.
The cost to attend is $65. A catered lunch is available for $10 (this must be prepaid; no lunch will be available for purchase at the retreat). If you prefer, you may brown-bag your lunch. Working scholarships are available – contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
