Discernment & Contemplative Dialogue: Noticing and Responding to Wisdom in Daily Life

October 10, 2019 - October 13, 2019


Offered by Christine Luna Munger
Thursday, October 10 – Sunday, October 13, 2019 (intermediate)
$425 (Scholarships available)

Deep listening is a contemplative skill central to the practices of discernment and contemplative dialogue. During this retreat, we will hone our listening skills as we seek deep encounter with God, ourselves, and others. We will explore some of our assumptions about God, ourselves, and others to deepen understanding and healing in our relationships.

Christine will present her ongoing work with the Five Ordinary Movements (ups and downs, back and forth, cycling of spirals, tension of a web, and vibration of concentric circles) as a Wisdom framework for engaging contemplative dialogue and discernment. Participants will be invited to do their own “wisdom work” through exploration of key relationships and significant life decisions.

Our time together will include presenter teaching, creative reflection activities, shared contemplative prayer experiences, leisure time in solitude, and individual and group spiritual companionship.
