EXTRAVAGANT LOVE: THE GOSPEL MYSTICISM OF RUTH BURROWS
Monday, July 31 – Thursday, August 3
This retreat will consider the spiritual writings of English Carmelite nun Ruth Burrows. We will reflect on the source of her spiritual insights, the foundations of her mystical doctrine, and what it means for her to be drawn into and to become the “Yes” of Jesus Crucified, and the transformation that ensues. The retreat will include time for pondering key texts from a wide variety of her published works, including Before the Living God, To Believe in Jesus, and Guidelines for Mystical Prayer.
Fr. Stephen Coffey, 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 Theology in Collegeville, MN and holds degrees in Christian Spirituality from Creighton in Omaha and in Pastoral Leadership from Chaminade in Honolulu.
