Lectio Divina in Nature (on-site)

WAITING LIST ONLY September 23, 2023 | Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m.,CDT

facilitated by Sr. Elizabeth Carrillo 
Cost: $70 (includes noon meal)
This day-long retreat introduces you to the practice of lectio divina with nature. Rooted in the early Christian understanding of the two Books of God’s self-revelation—the Book of Nature and the Book of Scriptures— “lectio natura” recognizes all creation as a living scripture, a sacred text. Listening with the ear of the heart, we learn to encounter God in the works of God’s own hands and attune ourselves to the divine presence in all things. Join us for this time of prayerful, experiential encounter with opportunities for personal prayer, journaling, and sharing insights with one another.
Note: While you will be encouraged to go out and explore the grounds, this retreat is very adaptable to whatever your mobility allows, whether that be walking the far reaches of the campus, staying inside, or something else in-between. Please reach out if you have any specific questions for us, and we will be happy to address them.
Please register by September 16. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available; if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at sophia@mountosb.org. We strongly encourage you to add sophia@mountosb.org to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat.
