Contemplation and the First Book of Revelation

March 23 – 25, 2012

Friday through Sunday (2 nights)


based on accommodations choice

Engage with the primary text of Divine Revelation as the sacred story of the universe. Consider the universe – earth, life, human life, and human consciousness – as part of an evolving, unfinished sequence of events, emerging some 13.6 billion years ago as the primary revelation of the Mystery out of which it comes. As humanity brings our planet into irreversible damage, our contemplation of this Book of Revelation may provide guidance and grace for shaping a future of greater harmony and well-being for all of life. Short films, lectures, ritual, journaling, and small group discussions will be included.

$380/private room; $300/shared room; $220/commuter.
