Feb 21-26, 2019

PLEASE NOTE: this retreat is now full. Please contact Jane Waldron Bearce at 602-725-9260, or by email at wisdomschoolsouthwest@gmail.com for more information.

This is high season in Tuscon, so this Wisdom School might be particularly appealing to those of us in the Northeast.

The Desert Mothers and Fathers is our theme for this special event Wisdom School. These early Christians living in the desert developed a way of life that has much to teach us in this age. Cynthia brings us a rhythm of silence, contemplation, teaching and personal time during these desert days at the beautiful Redemptorist Renewal Center in the northwest part of Tucson, Arizona. This is a special event Wisdom School so there are no prerequisites for attendance. We will begin with Cynthia Bourgeault after dinner Thursday, February 21 and end at noon on Tuesday, February 26, 2019. All meals are included.

Recommended reading: The Sayings of the Desert Fathers by Benedicta Ward, Listen to the Desert by Gregory Mayers, and The Wisdom of the Desert by Thomas Merton.

You might also wish to listen to Cynthia’s Desert Fathers & Mothers audio teaching from the last retreat to familiarize yourself with these concepts.
