THE REALITY OF THE UNSEEN Looking at Mysticism and Religious Experience as a Gift of Being Human- SOLD OUT
March 20 @ 5:00 pm - March 22 @ 10:00 am
This retreat will reveal and illumine our inner experience of God, in its subtle and dramatic forms. Being human is acknowledging our dependence on the Unseen, the Transcendent, the Creative Source — God. Made in God’s image and likeness, mystics experience this more-than-human knowing and loving that comes from their Creator. Are we not all called to be in mystical communion with God? Paying attention to God’s interventions in saintly lives can illumine our personal path of religious experience that draws us closer to God and to our true selves. The works of William James, Evelyn Underhill, and Bernard McGinn will be a few sources in our explorations.
