East Meets West in Awareness: Spiritual Wisdom of Anthony DeMello, SJ
Cranaleith Spiritual Center, 13475 Proctor Road, NE Philadelphia
Start Date and Time:
Saturday, June 15, 9:00 AM
End Date and Time
Saturday, June 15, 4:00 PM
Christian seekers in the West are often drawn to the ancient spiritual wisdom of the East, but may not know how to engage it. Indian born Anthony DeMello, SJ – clinical psychologist, author and world-wide retreat director – synthesized spiritual insights from East and West into a vibrant, seasoned spiritual wisdom. This same spiritual wisdom is available to each of us and it grows by living a life of awareness.
This retreat will be a day of waking up, drawing from both Eastern and Western insights. We will practice DeMello’s spiritual exercises – which he calls “Christian exercises in Eastern form” – and experience how this style of prayer expands our awareness and enlivens our spirit.
