TRANSFORMATION FOR A NEW CREATION
Friday, April 24-Sunday, April 26, 2020
This weekend retreat will explore the mysticism of two of the 20th century's profound spiritual mentors: the French Jesuit scientist Teilhard de Chardin & the American philosopher & contemplative practitioner Beatrice Bruteau. Her theology rests on Teilhard's vision. Whereas Teilhard saw the grand cosmic scheme of Christ in evolution, Beatrice developed an understanding of the human person in evolution. She invites us to participate in the divine ecstasy that leads to personal transformation and a new creation.
