Humility and Hospitality: Benedictine Spirituality in Daily Life

Offered by Christine Luna Munger, Ph D
Friday, January 24 — Sunday, January 26 (introductory)
$325 (Scholarships available) Student rate: $150

As a teacher and spiritual director, Christine knows what it is like to hold the tensions between the inner and outer contemplative life. That is why she is passionate about bringing wisdom from the Benedictine tradition into her teaching about spirituality as it is lived in the messiness and complexity of daily life. Christine has been a Benedictine Oblate since 2006.

While on retreat, we will experience the depth and breadth of Christine’s Benedictine heart and mind through interactive teaching sessions, multiple daily silent sits, and an opportunity for spiritual direction.

Words from our teacher…
Humility and hospitality are hallmarks of Benedictine spirituality. While each is pertinent to both the inner and outer life, humility offers a special opportunity to do inner work and hospitality affords occasion to do outer work. Both humility and hospitality contribute to personal and communal transformation. Together, we will explore how these two spiritual practices might shape our own spiritual journeys.
