A Silent Contemplative Advent Retreat with James Finley, PhD
Following the Mystics on the Healing Path of Experiential Salvation

7:00pm Friday, December 8 to 1:30pm Sunday, December 10

A silent weekend Advent retreat devoted to exploring passages in the writings of the Christian mystics and related sources that help us to be healed from the suffering that flows in our our estrangement from God’s presence in our lives. We will pay close attention to passages in which the mystics help us to to pray, meditate and live in ways that opens and then heals the sweet wound of unconsummated longings for God that incarnate and echo with God’s infinite longings for us. And we will see how this healing journey inspires, even impels us, to be lovingly present to others in ways that helps them to experience God’s healing presence in their lives, so they in turn might pass on the contagious energy of experiential salvation to others. Practical examples taken from daily life and guidelines in the foundational aspects of prayer and meditation will be provided.
The weekend will include periods of shared silent meditation and prayer and an opportunity to discuss the themes presented. Limited space remaining.  Cost: per person/shared $340 ($320 if paid in full by November 17); single room $460 ($440 if paid in full by November 17)
