The 2019 John Main Seminar will be held near Vancouver at Quest University in Squamish (August 8-11) and will be preceded by an optional Silent Retreat (August 5-8) with Fr. Laurence Freeman OSB, Director of the World Community for Christian Meditation. A bus will transport registrants between Vancouver International Airport/ downtown Vancouver (2 stops) and Quest University on August 5 and August 11.
The theme of the Pre-Seminar Silent Retreat is Sources of Wisdom. Through talks and times of silence, Fr.
