Silent Retreat with The Rev. Matthew Wright
Please plan on joining us as we welcome back The Rev. Matthew Wright for a silent contemplative retreat. More details to come closer to the date. The retreat will begin with supper on Tuesday evening and finish with lunch on Friday.
Matthew Wright is an Episcopal priest serving the wonderful community of St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church in Woodstock, NY. He is also a teacher and retreat leader for Northeast Wisdom and The Contemplative Society, non-profits dedicated to the renewal of the Christian Wisdom tradition, and a dervish on the Mevlevi Sufi path. Matthew lives with his wife Yanick and cat Moonbeam alongside the brothers of Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, NY.
His spiritual formation has happened largely along two lines, one Christian, the other Sufi: the rich traditions of Anglicanism, the Episcopal Church, and the Wisdom Schools of Cynthia Bourgeault, and the Mevlevi Order through the teaching of Kabir and Camille Helminski.
