Mission: To offer a formation program for the contemplative journey, rooted in the Christian wisdom tradition and an emerging, interspiritual, ecological and socially-engaged framework.
The Genesis School for Contemplative Living is a nine-month immersive formation program for the contemplative journey, rooted in the Christian wisdom tradition. Over the course of five residential retreat weekends, we will explore contemplative vision and practice within an emerging ecological, interspiritual and socially-engaged framework. Learning will be intellectual and experiential, seeking to nourish both head and heart for the transformational journey. Residencies will include teaching, periods of practice, ritual, and group process. In between residential weekends, formation will continue through study, conference calls, and online community. While rooted in the Christian tradition, we welcome participants from all and no faith background.
The School qualifies for 8 Religious Studies CEUs through Our Lady of the Elms College!
Faculty: Brother Don Bisson, FMS; S. Jane Comerford, CSJ; Dr. Robert A. Jonas; Christina Leano; Rev. Matthew Wright
This program will be taught through Christian, Contemplative, Evolutionary, Prophetic, and Interspiritual lenses.
