Holy Wisdom, Mother of God:
Exploring the Divine Feminine with Fr. Matthew Wright
Tuesday, September 24 to Friday, September 27, 2019
Cowichan Lake Forestry Research Station
Vancouver Island, BC, Canada
Cost: $775 single room/$650 shared
Join us for three days of chant, teaching, and contemplative practices to nourish the spiritual heart. Together we will explore devotion to the Divine Feminine in the Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions, particularly under the guises of Sophia, or Wisdom, and Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Attention will be given to insights from pioneering Christian mystics Thomas Merton and Teilhard de Chardin, as well as from non-Christian sources.
Our time will be held within a contemplative rhythm of silence, chanting, meditation, and embodiment practices. People of all spiritual traditions (or none) are welcome.
