AMMAS, MONKS, & ARCHETYPES 2022
December 5 @ 5:30 pm - December 9 @ 10:00 am
This retreat will take a look at 4 monastic figures: Amma Syncletica, St. Benedict, St. Hildegard, and Thomas Merton and their corresponding archetypes: the warrior, the sage, the visionary, and the inner monk. Each day will include an introduction to the figure, lectio divina on the theme, visio divina of an icon of the figure, and personal reflection on the archetypes and its shadow through mandala making. Let figures from our sacred tradition become relevant to our lives as they help us to illuminate parts of ourselves that need further development to grow in wholeness and in our relationship to God.
