- Does your heart long for a deeper connection to God in the midst of these turbulent times?
- Do you yearn to live from a place of calm and love instead of fear?
- Do you desire to journey together in a community of like-hearted souls?
If so, join us for the eight-month program, Heart Longings: An Invitation to the Contemplative Path, November 2020-June 2021 on Zoom. We will begin and end the program with 24-hour retreats and meet monthly on Saturday mornings in between. In addition to the monthly whole-group meetings, there will be monthly small group meetings and monthly one-to-one meetings with a spiritual director. Readings and reflections follow the themes of the monthly gatherings.
The early-bird deadline to apply for this program is October 8, and the regular deadline is October 22. Early-bird deadline saves you money! Scholarship assistance is available.
