Cinema Divina Retreat

With Marilyn Freeman

November 2 - 4, 2018

Open your mystical heart in communion with others in this restorative weekend-long retreat of rest, film screenings and personal writing. Re-imagining the ancient lectio divina prayer practice both for film watching and creative writing, Marilyn Freeman will engage participants in meditative screenings of short films made for contemplation and in generative personal writing.
