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.

For recurring events, see the Contemplative Prayer and Study Groups page or the Groups Calendar.
