Wisdom Southwest is hosting another Wisdom School on the Desert Fathers and Mothers. These early Christians living in the desert developed a way of life that has much to teach us in this age. Cynthia Bourgeault brings a rhythm of silence,
contemplation, teaching, and personal time during these desert days at the beautiful Redemptorist Renewal Center in the northwest part of Tucson, AZ. There are no pre-requisites for attendance.


PLEASE NOTE: this retreat is now full. Please follow the instructions below to be added to the waitlist.

Cost: Full board, single or double occupancy: $1100 to $1610 USD (including $300 non-refundable deposit)
Recommended reading: The Sayings of the Desert Fathers by Benedicta Ward, Listen to the Desert by Gregory Mayers, and The Wisdom of the Desert by Thomas Merton.
