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

Rev. Stephen Coffey, OSB Cam

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.

Terry Hershey
Sanctuary: Creating Spaces to Rest, Renew & Live.
Rev. Terry Hershey
7:00pm Friday, November 22 to 1:30pm Sunday, November 24
This weekend retreat is an opportunity for sanctuary, care and presence in the moment.  Care of any kind—compassion, generosity, reconciliation, service, ministry, teaching, giving—begins with and is nourished by self-care. Or in the words of Charlie Parker, “If it ain’t in you it can’t come out of your horn.” Care begins with the power of pause. Care begins with the intentional choices we make about being present…passion, grace, play, laughter and wholeheartedness.
Cost: per person/shared $240; single $340; Commuter: $150
