Advent Retreat

Silent Advent Retreat – Embracing Oneness…Renewing our Contemplative Life

The contemplative journey is the ever increasing appreciation of who God is and also knowing that God is Unknowable.  Borrowing from the Psalms (Nan Merrill translation), scripture, chant and sacred poetry, we will explore the Spirit of Oneness as it forms our contemplative life.

Journeying together we will explore how we can nod to consent.  Bow to surrender.  Release to receptivity and be blessed into effortlessness.

"In oneness, there is not more or less, there is only oneness."

                                                 ~Thomas Keating


"Forsake everything that is yours.  Undertake this, and let it cost you everything you can afford.  There you will find true peace, and nowhere else."

                                                   ~Meister Eckhart, Counsels #4


In this Advent weekend retreat we will be guided through the grace of Oneness by our spiritual friend and mentor, Susan Rush. Embraced by silence with short periods of reflection led by Susan we will delve deeper into the experience of being contemplatives on a journey of Oneness.
