TEILHARD DE CHARDIN AND JUNG: AWAKENING THE FIRES OF LOVE
These two great 20th century scientists discovered the power and force of energy both within and without. Through the insights and breakthroughs of both science and mysticism we are aware of the power of Love as the greatest power of the universe. This retreat will encourage us to connect deeply with the fires of love which propel our psyches and universe to spiritual transformation.
Jung, the famous psychologist, was intrigued by the inter-relationship between psyche and matter. Chardin, the paleontologist, was intrigued by the inter-relationship between matter and psyche. The dialogue between the energy of the cosmos and the True Self within will be discussed, especially towards mystical consciousness. A deeper Fire of Desire moves us forward to a new Unity in the midst of a broken and fractured world.
Jung and Chardin provide new language and insights for the spiritual journey. The weekend will include presentations, quiet time for reflections and prayer, and opportunities to share our journeys together.
