Silent Retreats, 2020

In the Gaze of Luminous Presence
Santa Casa Retreat Centre, Queenscliff,
Saturday September 26th – Saturday October 3rd, 2020

For our God is a consuming fire….(Heb 12:29)

In an atmosphere of prayerful silence we will create a communion consciousness. Together, we will ponder the contemplative nuances of unitive seeing from our oneness in luminous Presence. We will focus on the mystical symbol of fire expressed in the writings of Gertrude of Helfta, Marguerite Porete, Meister Eckhart, Teilhard de Chardin and Iia Delio. Ever attentive to the stirrings of the Holy Spirit enflaming our hearts, we will draw out implications for creations’ evolutionary flow into oneness in Love. Cost: $600
