Wisdom Weekend Retreat

January 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:15 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on January 27, 2018 at 9:00am

Join us in January as we come together and experience an introduction to the Wisdom tradition and container as shared through the teaching of Cynthia Bourgeault, an Episcopalian Priest and retreat leader. We will build the connections internally and collectively using tools that awaken our collective Heart: meditation, chanting, movements, Lectio Divina. Wisdom hinges on the transition to a different mode of perception, classically referred to as “putting the mind in the heart.” This retreat will invite us more deeply into our bodies, hearts and minds as we practice this ancient knowing together.
