“Come Apart and Rest Awhile”: A Lenten Retreat Weekend

$140.00$190.00

The Lenten Gospel readings show that Jesus was a man of prayer who not only found God everywhere in the “marketplace” of his world, but who also “often withdrew to lonely places” (Lk 5:16) to be alone with God and with himself. Jesus was drawn to the solitude intrinsic to such natural environments as the desert, the mountain, and the garden because these places mirrored his own interior life and facilitated his ever deepening relationship with his Abba. You are invited during this retreat weekend to “come apart and rest a while” (Mk 6:31) with Jesus and, in praying with him, to discover these places within your own heart.  (When registering please choose an option of Resident or Commuter.  Resident means you will be staying overnight and need a bed and commuter means you will not be staying overnight and will not need a bed. )

March 13-15, 2020  Starts Friday at 7 PM and ends Sunday at 11 AM

Cultural anthropologist Angeles Arrien designates four universal archetypes which, when accessed in a balanced way, can facilitate an individual’s movement toward growth, wholeness, and holiness.  She is convinced that each of us needs to develop our own unique potential in the areas of leading, healing, visioning, and teaching.  Such an integration can empower us to offer the kind of wisdom that is uniquely ours: both as women and as disciples of Jesus Christ, the Wisdom of God.  You are invited to explore the beauty of these four paths, walking with Jesus as your companion and using the Gospel as your guide.

Full Pay – Commuter, Full Pay – Resident

The Gospel readings which we hear proclaimed during the Lenten liturgical cycle clearly evidence that Jesus was a man of prayer who not only found God everywhere in the “marketplace” of his world, but who also “often withdrew to lonely places” (Lk 5:16) to be alone with God and with himself. Throughout his public life, Jesus was drawn to the solitude intrinsic to such natural environments as the desert, the mountain, and the garden because these places mirrored his own interior life and facilitated his ever deepening relationship with his Abba. You are invited during this retreat weekend to “come apart and rest a while” (Mk 6:31) with Jesus and, in praying with him, to discover these places within your own heart.
