While on retreat, we will explore the Way of the Heart through three Wisdom streams: Sufism, Christianity, and Advaita Vedanta. We will offer particular attention to the teachings of Rumi, St. Theophan the Recluse, Ramana Maharshi, and Teilhard de Chardin. This silent retreat will include a rhythm of teaching, meditation, chanting, and embodiment practices.
