As we celebrate the diverse heritage of the Mystics in our daily lives, take some time to explore their personal biographies and the incredible contributions they have made to contemporary spirituality, cosmology and intentional living. Join us as we consider many prominent, spiritual figures from the 20th century and excerpts from their literary works, including Henri Nouwen, Teilhard de Chardin and Dorothy Day. Opportunities for reflection and participation in some creative exercises around these texts will also be integrated after a delicious dinner. Prior reading of these authors or familiarity with them is not mandatory. Please bring a journal for use throughout the program. Guided by Gordon Creamer.
After a delicious dinner in our dining room, we will gather for an enriching presentation and discussion.
