Ground Luminosity Silent Teaching and Meditation Retreat with Cynthia Bourgeault

Dec 10-15, 2020

This silent, Centering Prayer-based retreat will prepare practitioners enter more deeply into the Christian season of Advent, that mysterious liturgical “thin place” where light and darkness, birth and death, heaven and earth, apocalyptic rumblings and tender new birth all draw very close together. The mystically attuned heart can approach this cosmic wellspring—or wormhole— and begin to read here “the signs of the times,” drawing from it both the strength and lucidity to live courageously in a world apparently adrift. 

The purpose of this retreat will be to attune our hearts, both individually and collectively. Grounded in the rhythm of the classic Centering Prayer immersion retreat, our time together will include three daily periods of formal meditation, sacred chanting and body prayer, and teaching by Cynthia Bourgeault drawing particularly on Thomas Merton and Rumi, whose respective deaths (on December 10 and December 17) bookend this week and. anchor us in the cosmic heart from which all else flows.

Check in time is 3-6pm; departure after lunch.
