September 29 @ 7:30 pm – October 2 @ 1:00 pm
The need for ecological and social activism in today’s world is undeniable. But how do we keep up the essential struggles for peace, justice and the integrity of creation without succumbing to the many possible burn-outs of body, spirit, hope and happiness?
This four day retreat aspires to deepen in retreatants both their commitment to work creatively for a better world and their capacity to sustain this work in wholesome, life-giving ways.
Sharing practices of meditation, physical exercise, prayer, artistic expression and intellectual engagement, participants will fortify their ability to be contemplatives in action, wherever their particular sphere of activism lies. It also aims at strengthening integral leadership in the social and ecological sectors.
All persons concerned about Earth and neighbour will benefit from this interactive retreat.
This is a guided retreat that includes daily celebration of the Eucharist, presentations on a topic and may allow for a short period of time for consultation with a spiritual director. Each day provides ample time for personal prayer and reflection. There may be other communal prayer times in addition to the daily Eucharist. Spiritual direction is optional.
