Lent and the Experience of Personal Change

March 23, 2019

Lenten Retreat Schedule


  8:00 Matins

9:00 am Registration & Lite Breakfast

9:45 am Welcome & Preview of the Day

10:00 am   Sister Rebecca
We will explore the Lenten Journey as a gateway to luminous consciousness through soul work.  It involves encountering the shadows of the heart:  parts of ourselves, qualities and painful experiences that have been exiled from or not fully integrated in our consciousness. Every manifestation of our shadow sides is a moment of graced illumination, an epiphany enabling us to be who we really are: the Beloved of God.

12:00 pm Lunch

1:15 pm Tersext

1:45 pm  Brother Stavros
  A look at confession:  The history and function of confession as the pivotal experience of the Lenten Journey; the Rite of Confession as a physical encounter with the forgiving Lord and reconciliation with the human community and all creation.

3:15 pm   Brother Christopher
 This conference will use the insights from the prayer of the heart along with those from the recently published book by Dr. Peter Bouteneff, “How to be a Sinner” to lead us to a richer experience of the mystery of confession.

5:00 pm Vespers w/ healing service
