Transformation for A New Creation:
Teilhard de Chardin and Beatrice Bruteau

Rev. Stephen Coffey, OSB Cam
7:00pm Friday, October 25 to 1:30pm Sunday, October 27

This weekend retreat will explore the mysticism of two of the 20th century’s profound spiritual mentors:  the French Jesuit scientist Teilhard de Chardin, and the American philosopher and contemplative practitioner Beatrice Bruteau. Whereas Teilhard saw the grand cosmic scheme of Christ in evolution, Beatrice developed an understanding of the human person in evolution. She invites us to participate in the divine ecstasy that leads to both personal transformation and a new creation.
Cost: per person/shared $240; single $340; Commuter: $150
