Summer Stillness: A Retreat for Women

Led by Kathryn McMorrow

August 10-14, 2015

Monday Check-in by 5:30 PM Dinner until Friday after lunch

Relax, renew and reenergize in the tranquil beauty of Mount Carmel.  This year’s theme is THE WISDOM OF TERESA OF AVILA:  A JOURNEY THROUGH THE INTERIOR CASTLE.  On the 500th anniversary of the birth of this great mystic, reformer, doctor of the Church and down-to-earth woman, explore your own journey to the Centre of who you truly are. We will use a framework of Jungian psychology and the language of symbols to understand the relevance, for us today, of Teresa’s profound insights.

This is not a silent retreat.  Input sessions will be balanced by meditative activities and periods of silence for prayer and reflection. Meals can be taken in silence or in conversation. Participants will be invited to personalize this retreat to meet their needs. If you wish, bring any materials you have on Teresa of Avila as well as pictures or models of castles, butterflies, artwork materials.

Registration is limited to 18 Participants. For more information, e-mail questions to Kathryn at [email protected]

Cost: $500
