World Contemplative Spiritualities: Spiritual Practices of Wisdom Traditions

Human beings yearn for deep understanding of our place in the universe and our relationship with ultimate reality. Wisdom Traditions agree that there is an infinite Source to our existence; that human beings in our core are one with this divine Source and that the true purpose of life is conscious experience of this ultimate Source. In this retreat, we will experience contemplative spiritualities and practices from a variety of traditions (Christian centering prayer, Zen mindfulness meditation, Hindu passage recitation, Sufi love poetry, and nature spirituality walk), offering opportunities to engage as a group in the spirituality of stillness and attentiveness. The paths are many and rich, each of them revealing that we have an innate capacity to live life with deep purpose and great joy.
