Notes of Rest – via Zoom
May 14, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm$10 – $25
Hosted by Contemplative Outreach of Chicago
Notes of Rest is a musical-textual retreat, which places meditations from a Bible passage and writings from Black contemplatives on a bed of music, cultivating stillness, introspection, and creativity in communities so that all may find rest. The approach may be thought of as a kind of “Musica Divina,” which uses the beauty and spiritual power of music to help workshop participants find their way to a quiet, reflective interior space where we can be fully receptive to grace, or what Thomas Keating described as “God’s presence and action within.” The event will start with 20 minutes of Centering Prayer prior to the 90-minute Notes of Rest workshop. Then there will be a half-hour break, followed by an optional lecture on music and Black contemplative life and their unique contributions to Christian mysticism.
