MiniSabbath: “Rediscovering and Renewing Passion on the Spiritual Journey”

$2,000.00

This 3-week Sabbath time will explore the call to Passion in our lives, especially in light of its importance in the spiritual journey. If the God of Love is also the God of Mystery, how does Passion as a Life-Force bear witness to the Mystery of Love? And how might I both “rediscover and renew” Passion within my life’s journey towards being more alive In-Spirit?

July 8-28, 2018     Starts at 4 PM on first day and ends at 11 AM on last day.

This 3-week Sabbath time will explore the call to Passion in our lives, especially in light of its importance in the spiritual journey. If the God of Love is also the God of Mystery, how does Passion as a Life-Force bear witness to the Mystery of Love? And how might I both “rediscover and renew” Passion within my life’s journey towards being more alive In-Spirit?

Our 3 weeks will include: morning workshops/presentations, free afternoons/evenings (with options available); suggestions for prayer/reflection; spiritual companioning (direction); availability of daily Eucharist, electives (art, T’ai chi chih, yoga, massage, basketweaving, films). Several guest speakers, elective teachers, and Sabbath facilitator, Bro. Michael, will be our presenters.

The second week of the Sabbath will be devoted to a guided retreat: “Spirituality on Film: Realities of God’s Grace”. It is hoped that this will aid in ‘depthing’ our theme within a silent contemplative time (which will include daily spiritual companioning).
