Join us for a weekend retreat as we engage in Ancient Christian Wisdom practices including meditation, chanting, movements, and Lectio Divina. This weekend’s teaching will focus on the Law of Three – an ancient teaching regarding the law of creation - and the ways it relates to the Holy Trinity. Join fellow wisdom seekers as we discover how the Law of Three can open our hearts, minds and bodies as we awaken in the world and more fully experience the mystery of God’s Holy Trinity.
Retreat leader, Jeanine Siler Jones, has studied extensively with modern day mystic, Episcopal priest, and writer Cynthia Bourgeault. Jeanine began her study with Bourgeault in 2009 and has been particularly interested in unpacking and applying her teaching from The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three: Discovering the Radical Truth at the Heart of Christianity (2013). Jeanine works as a Spiritually integrated Psychotherapist and Spiritual Director in Asheville, North Carolina, and leads Wisdom Tradition retreats throughout the region. We are delighted to welcome her, once again, to Christ Church Cathedral.
Suggested donation is $25. Please complete registration form here.
