Dates: May 8 – 13, 2024
Location: Ignatius Jesuit Center in Guelph, Ontario, Canada
This retreat aims to help participants bring “skillful means” to the current social and ecological situation imperiling the planet. These means include forbearance, strength, compassion, right timing, spiritual generativity, and personal mettle.
Daily teaching will be augmented by sustained work in core spiritual practices: the generation of necessary spiritual “nutrients” (such as faith, hope, trust, love), sacred dances and chanting. The work will be integrated through periods of silence and rest, plus some mindful, manual labor accomplished in teams.
