STILL FULL OF SAP, STILL GREEN: A Spirituality of Aging   

Monday, October 19-Thursday, October 22, 2020

 

This retreat will be inspired by research and by many writers' reflections on spirituality for the second half of life. Creative living within the season of wisdom, greater and ongoing maturation, and positive transformation of the inner life will be some of the meditations for a full life in the Spirit. Experiencing limitations during one's aging process will be explored as opportunities for transcendence and spiritual fecundity that could not be profoundly realized in earlier seasons of growth.  

 

Fr. Francis Benedict has been a monk of Valyermo since 1967. He earned an MA in Philosophy from Loyola-Marymount University and an MS in Theology from Mt. Angel in Oregon. He was ordained a priest in 1976. He served as the Abbey's abbot for 16 years. His special areas of ministry include spiritual direction, preaching retreats, and working with 12-step recovery groups. In addition to many responsibilities at the Abbey, he now serves as the Director of Oblates.

 

Dr. Diane Bunker is a retired psychologist who worked with older people receiving care in Rehabilitation Medicine and Hospice. She obtained her M.Div and Ph.D from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena. She comes with a wealth of personal, professional, and pastoral experience.
