Converging on Omega: The Mysticism of Teilhard de Chardin
7 Apr 2016 - 10 Apr 2016
Location Holy Cross Monastery
Led by the Rev. Dr. Cynthia Bourgeault with Rev. Matthew Wright, this retreat is hosted by Holy Cross Monastery.
Ending on the 61st anniversary of Teilhard’s death, we will concentrate on how the mystical vision he first glimpsed during his stretcher-bearer days in World War I became the pole star guiding his entire life, and particularly the approach to his own death, as he found himself increasingly subsumed in Christ. Readings will be drawn from Mass on the World, The Divine Milieu, Hymn of the Universe, and The Heart of Matter. Suggested preparatory reading is Teilhard’s Mysticism by Kathleen Duffy.
Cost: $415; deposit $80
