Transforming Grief

Saturday, November 12, 2016

During this Quiet Day we will acknowledge the transformational power of grief and the Holy Spirit who is able to ‘open’ the dark treasures of the grief experience to us.

Through prayer with the Shema (“Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One…”) and a practice of Lectio Divina with St. John of the Cross, we will learn how to respond to the guidance of the Holy Spirit from within our experience of grief. Our day together will offer a balance of time together and time alone.

At the end of the day, we will leave with a clear and simple method of practice which will enable us to continue to “mine” the deep spiritual resources latent in the grief experience itself.

Led by the Rev. Max Woolaver, parish priest at St. Andrew’s, Grimsby, and a graduate of the Shalem program for spiritual directors. He is also a member of Spiritual Directors of Ontario.
