Our Place in the Family of Things: Re-tuning To Be Attuned to Divine Love with Leah Buturain, PhD
Saturday, July 25, 2020 9:00am to 5:00pm

We look forward to summer, yet sometimes our expectations get in the way of welcoming our reality. During this day, I will be offering some thoughts on Mary in the annunciation as a contemplative conceiving in faith and bearing fruit in action; we, too, are called to bear the beams of love. There will be opportunities for time both alone and to share. Give yourself a midsummer’s present of savoring the day’s gifts and graces. Please wear comfortable clothing so that we can honor our bodies needs to stretch. Also, bring a journal, and if you would like, an image or story that speaks to you of our belonging in the world. You are also welcome to show up simply with thirst and a song in your heart. Leah Marie Buturain, PhD, is a theologian, medievalist, and gerontologist who has been teaching at USC’s Leonard Davis School of Gerontology for twenty years. Professor Buturain earned her certificate in Spiritual Direction from the three-year program at Mt. St. Mary’s, Doheney Campus, and serves as Spiritual Director at Our Mother of Good Counsel in Los Feliz. Dr. Buturain offers seminars and presentations on Mindful Aging at the Board of Councilor’s Vibrant Living Retreat and serves on USC’s Mindful Science Committee. Cost: $50 Lunch included.
