Leadership and the Rule of Benedict: Stability 

Friday, September 22 - Sunday, September 24, 2017


Retreat Description: A defining characteristic of Benedictine monasticism is stability, which means "staying put" from both a physical and existential perspective. This workshop will use the film Gandhi to reflect on the dynamics of stability in our lives. Participants will learn about monastic stability in history and at Valyermo, will use the life and actions of Mahatma Gandhi to illustrate the key concepts of stability, and will reflect on how this is made real in their own personal and work lives.


Presenter: Dr. Mike Carey is an oblate of Valyermo. He is the Dean of the Virtual Campus at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. He has taught leadership studies at the graduate level for 25 years at Gonzaga and is currently working to ensure that Gonzaga's graduate programs online follow in the tradition of Jesuit education that stretches back to St. Ignatius of Loyola. But his first love is St. Benedict and the community of St. Andrew's Abbey, which he has been connected to since 1971.
