Event Description

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.
