NEW YEAR'S RETREAT: "Behold, I make all things new!" (Rev. 21:5)

Tuesday, December 31, 2019 - January 2, 2020


In this New Year's workshop we will ponder images and texts from the Christian East and West that depict our inner renewal in Christ.  First is the Eastern icon of the Anastasis or resurrection; second is Dante's depiction of transformation in the end of the "Purgatorio" and the "Paradiso" of his Divine Comedy; third is St. Gregory the Great's model of contemplation and renewal at the end of the Life of Benedict. Handouts of texts and images will be provided to workshop participants. 


Fr. Luke Dysinger has been a monk of Valyermo since 1976.  He is a priest and a physician who writes and teaches in the fields of mystical theology and biomedical ethics.  He earned a Ph.D. at Oxford University and currently teaches at St. John's Seminary in Camarillo, CA as well as online courses.
