Seeking Christ, Our Soul’s True Lover

Tuesday, January 30 – Friday, February 2, 2018

Led by Br. Aidan Owen, OHC


You seduced me, 0 Lord, and l was seduced. -Jer. 2:7

Christian mystics often write of a powerful longing that leads them to abandon all in their search for Christ, their soul’s true lover. Drawing on the Song of Songs, poetry, and Christian contemplative literature, we will join the mystics in seeking Christ not only with our minds but also with our bodies and our hearts. Retreat talks will offer a framework of spirituality and theology that undergirds spiritual practice and small-group sharing. We will focus on desire, longing, the body, sexuality, resistance, trust, surrender, and contemplation.
