Holy Saturday Retreat: Accompanying Jesus and Mary Magdalene – online or in-person

April 8, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Holy Saturday marks Jesus’ journeys into the heart of the earth in which he not only encounters the most constricted, cut off and hurt states of human consciousness in the collective false self but allows love to reach them and weave them into the whole. Meanwhile Mary Magdalene, the Tower, keeps vigil with a heart open in love as Jesus enters this pivotal point in the passion events, the outcome of which is still unknown to her. We are invited to enter this day from a wisdom point of view opening ourselves to the possibility of embodying the postures of Jesus and Mary Magdalene in the context of our very own lives.

Join us ONLINE or at the Centre for Spiritual Renewal in Langley, B.C. for a contemplative wisdom event led by Heather Ruce, in which we engage this sacred day with our minds, feelings, and body through teaching, reflection and shared wisdom practices.

Retreat Leader: Heather Ruce, M.A., is a wisdom spiritual director companioning individuals and facilitating wisdom practice circles, groups, retreats, and wisdom schools focused on learning and practicing the Christian Wisdom Tradition. She offers teaching and guidance in various wisdom and mindfulness practices including Centering Prayer, Christian meditation, sacred chanting, lectio divina, conscious work and embodiment in service of waking up and putting on the mind of Christ.
