A Sacred Encounter with Jesus & Rumi: the Very Heart of Love

August 7 @ 3:00 pm - August 9 @ 1:00 pm

Jesus and Rumi

Join us for an uplifting weekend that will consider two of the world’s prominent spiritual teachers and what a modern day encounter between them might include. An emphasis will be placed on the sacred wisdom that Jesus imparted through his cultivation of authentic living and loving and the inspired writings of Rumi that have been handed down through the ages.

From a Christian perspective, retreatants will be invited to explore the areas of intersection amongst mystical Christian and Islamic teachings while also considering their intentional application to 21st century spirituality. Throughout the weekend, there will be opportunities to creatively experience these spiritual figures and connect with the truth they offer to contemporary seekers.

Lastly, participants will emerge from the program with a timely awareness about the relevant gifts of Jesus and Rumi for our world and the healing role they can serve in fostering peaceful collaboration amongst all believers. A journal and comfortable shoes are great companions for this program.

Check-in begins at 3pm on Friday and dinner will be served at 6pm. The retreat will begin at 7pm.

Please contact Jennifer Murphy, Retreat Manager, at Jennifer_Murphy@nullRCCBonSecours.com if you are interested in a double occupancy lodging room option.
