HUSH: An Introduction to Christian Contemplative Practice
“Contemplation is anything that pierces your illusions and helps you touch Reality.” (Parker Palmer)
Christianity has a rich heritage of contemplative practice that support people’s connection to God. And, while much of these have been “lost” over the centuries, there is a growing interest and recognition of their profound support for our spiritual journey.
In this workshop, we’ll explore:
the history of contemplative practice within the Christian family
the reasons why this rich well of resources has been largely lost, and why there is a growing interest and resonance.
experiential practice of a number of contemplative practices including (Lectio Divina, Audio Divina, Visio Divina, Examen, Breath Prayer, and more)
Participants will receive:
a break from the busyness and noise of life to connect with God and listen to your soul
a deeper understanding and appreciation for the roots of Christian contemplative practice
tangible experience and resources that will support your own deepening and connection with God.
a ten-page “take-home” resource guide to support your personal practice
an afternoon in the heart of autumn glory on the gorgeous and serene retreat property
an opportunity to meet with like-minded folks (check out the opportunity to go out for dinner together afterwards)
delicious refreshments all afternoon (yes, there will be pumpkin loaf!)
