Zoom: Entering the Flow of Contemplation and Service through the 12 Steps of Humility Retreat
With Sr. Raphaela Cady
July 23 - 25, 2021
Sr. Raphaela will offer five 3 to 5 minute meditations on the flow of interior contemplation expressing itself outward in service to our communities and the world and returning once again to interior contemplation as a ceaseless motion of the Spirit ascending and descending the ladder of humility. Each meditation will be assigned a suggested day and time frame to be viewed (such as Friday evening) as a component of this individual contemplative retreat but will also be made available to view anytime and as many times as desired. This retreat is designed to engage individuals on multiple levels beyond the critical thought processes as experienced through reading. However, individuals for whom English is a second language or others who may benefit from having the words contained in the meditations in a text format, a Word document will be made available upon request. On Sunday, afternoon at 2pm we will gather on Zoom to share the fruits of our reflections.
Please note this program is an intermediate level of contemplative practice. If you are interested in an introductory contemplative retreat, please call the Spirituality Center. One will be offered in the near future. 360-438-2595.
