At Play in Creation: The Spirituality of Thomas Merton  

Monday, January 29 - Friday, February 2, 2018

 

Retreat Description: This retreat will focus on the period of Thomas Merton's life when he encountered Sophia, Holy Wisdom, in the depths of his heart. This led him to an intense study of the Russian Mystical writers. This in turn formed the backdrop of his remarkable prose poem Hagia Sophia. We will learn to appreciate what Merton has to say in this profound work as well as in related works from this fruitful time in his life as he discovers Wisdom at play in creation.

 

Presenter: Father Stephen Coffey, OSB Cam, a Massachusetts native, is a monk of the Camaldolese Congregation of the Order of St. Benedict, and lives at the Monastery of the Risen Christ in San Luis Obispo, where he is director of Oblates. He is a retreat director, spiritual director, and is involved in other formation ministries at the Hermitage in Big Sur and at San Lorenzo Seminary in Santa Ynez. He is a graduate of St. John's School of Theology in Collegeville, MN and holds degrees in Christian Spirituality from Creighton in Omaha and in Pastoral Leadership from Chaminade in Honolulu.
