An Advent Meditative Writing Retreat with Meg Ashcroft

We have come to expect immediate connection when we use our phones, computers and other devices.  Do we as easily realize our inseparable connection with the Holy One? In the season of Advent, we reflect on God’s deep desire to be in relationship with all of us which resulted in the divine becoming human in Jesus. We are given this gift that we might more fully appreciate that nothing can separate us from Love.

During this retreat day, we will have the opportunity to explore the all-embracing interconnectedness which gives meaning to our lives and our world.

All are welcome to participate and no writing experience is necessary.

Please register by Tuesday, December 3, 2019.

Being a Healing Presence: A Meditative Writing Retreat with Meg Ashcroft @ Norbertine Abbey

How do we live as people of faith in a world where many choose to tear down, divide, and foster fear?  As J. Philip Newell writes, “We may not know what the answers are, but we know that expressing our deepest longings for Presence and for connection is a key to the way forward.”  This day of meditative writing is an opportunity to consider how we are being called—individually and collectively—to contribute to the healing of our world. 

 The offering for the retreat day is $55.00, which includes lunch.  All are welcome to participate—no writing experience is necessary.  Please register by Tuesday, Jan. 21
