7:30 pm - 1:00 pm

Program Leader
Cynthia Bourgeault


In Wisdom school format Cynthia Bourgeault will continue her groundbreaking exploration of the 20th century scientist and mystic Teilhard de Chardin with a particular eye to the insights and tools that lie awaiting us there for a more skillful and hopeful passage through the social upheavals of our present era.  How do we live from the deepest wellsprings of hope, in tune with the evolutionary imperative emerging from the 14-billion-year-old universe story itself?  What needs to change in our traditional understanding of the spiritual journey in order to do so?

Each retreat day will include contemplation, prayer, and teachings. In addition, everyone will be expected to participate in mindful work each day, which may include tasks such as weeding, sweeping, and cleaning.  This part of the program is not optional and is a key component of the retreat experience.

Attendees are expected to have an established meditation practice.

Registration preference will be given to those who have completed an Introductory Wisdom School and at least one other Wisdom School (Divine Exchange, Desert Wisdom, Cloud of Unknowing, Trinity and the Law of Three).  Please provide information on the previous programs you have attended in the comment section upon registering.  Depending on your Wisdom School experience, you may be placed on a wait list.

Cynthia Bourgeault is a hermit, priest, prophetic author, and internationally known retreat leader. She is the author of many texts on the contemplative and wisdom traditions, including Wisdom Jesus.
