Seeking Christ, Our Soul’s True Lover

January 31, 2017 - February 3, 2017
West Park NY

Tuesday, January 31 – Friday, February 3, 2017

Led by Br. Will Owen

You seduced me, O Lord, and I was seduced.   – Jer. 20:7

The 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, 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, purity of heart, the foolishness of love, and contemplation.

Cost: $285; deposit: $80
