MARIAN POSTURES OF PRESENCE: Graceful Movements for a Spiritual Life


“What good is it to me if Mary gave birth to the Son of God fourteen hundred years ago and I do not also give birth to the Son of God in my time and in my culture? We are all meant to be Mothers of God”  said the bold and courageous mystic and theologian Meister Eckhart.  In this retreat we will explore a few ways in which we can enflesh the seed of the divine within us, birthing refreshing and re-creative ways of proceeding in the world we inhabit.
