Spiritual Enrichment

Thursday supper to Wednesday lunch

By trial and error, we are slowly learning how to pass this missing body link on to those who find themselves hungry for experience and not just more talk or ideas about God, but rather, in the words of St. Luke, that they would, “…seek, reach out for, and perhaps find the One who is really not far from any of us – the one in whom we live and move and have our very being…” (Acts 17:27-28 TIB) Fr. Ed McMahon

In this guided retreat we will explore the practice of BioSpiritual Focusing as based on the work of Eugene Gendlin and further developed by Frs. Pete Campbell and Ed McMahon. Participants will attend morning group sessions of learning and discussion, and each afternoon will meet one-on-one with a Focusing Companion.  There will be optional evening discussions to participate in, if desired. As you participate in this life-giving and life-changing experience over the course of the week, you will become more aware of the sacred story you carry in your own body and the movement of Grace in your own life.

Begins with supper at 6:00pm on Thursday and concludes with lunch at noon on Wednesday. Cost $595. Deposit $150. Balance due 10 days prior to start of retreat.

Leaders: Becky Crane, Kathy Irr, Donna O’Connor

Faith makes all things possible, and love makes them easy. Faith in God is never out of season. Faith justifies the believer, but love justifies his faith by the works which it produces. Faith believes God to be true; love proves faith to be true.
