EVERYDAY SPIRITUALITY: Living the Ordinary Extraordinarily 

Friday, September 1 - Sunday, September 3, 2023

According to Henri Nouwen, "To live in the present, we must believe deeply that what is most important is the here and now" and thus, "we must learn to live each day, each hour, yes, each minute as a new beginning, as a unique opportunity to make everything new." Employing Nouwen's rich insights into our spiritual life in conversation with the core features of both Benedictine and Ignatian spirituality, we will examine in this weekend retreat more closely how the ordinariness of our daily existence can be lived out extraordinarily when we learn to be truly present in the moment.

Wil Hernandez is an international retreat leader, spiritual director, and author of several books on Henri Nouwen. An oblate of Valyermo, he devotes a lot of his time propagating the enduring legacy of Nouwen through retreats, courses and workshops that he conducts all over the US, Canada and abroad. Aside from managing the Nouwen Legacy Associates (www.nouwenlegacy), Wil serves as the executive director of CenterQuest - an ecumenical hub for the study and practice of Christian spirituality (www.CQCenterQuest.org).
