Light in the Darkness: Glimpses of God’s Presence and Action Within

In preparation for Advent we offer this silent day retreat day.

When we use our sacred word, we repeatedly consent to the presence and action of God within. But how does the presence and action of God actually manifest?

In the morning’s teaching, we will pay attention to what happens during Centering Prayer, including distractions and blessings, the unloading of the unconscious, and psychological and spiritual experiences. Reflection questions will be provided for use with journaling, visual art or movement expressions.

The afternoon teaching will address experiences outside times of Centering Prayer. We will also talk about the role of spiritual direction (also called spiritual guidance or soul friending) in increasing our awareness of God’s presence and action. Reflection questions may be used in sharing dyads, or on one’s own.

As always, all activities are optional and the day will be cradled in silence.
