Holding the Holy: Enhancing the Sacred in the Second Half of Life (Registration Closed)
Holding the Holy: Enhancing the Sacred in the Second Half of Life
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED
Presented by Father James Burns and Sister Gabriele Uhlein
Program runs from Sunday, June 6 at 6:30pm thru Saturday, June 12 at 11:30am.
Our retreat directors will provide an integrated approach using the spiritual and psychological research on the stage of the second half of life. Father James Burns will examine the second half of life through the lens of the postdoctoral investigation he was part of at Boston University that researched the brain’s impact on the aging process. He will explore the effects of aging and the gift of spirituality as a mediator in this stage of our life’s journey.
Sister Gabriele Uhlein will offer retreatants an inquiry into “Spiritual Eldering” and late life happiness from her Franciscan perspective and Jungian studies. Building on the insights of Father Burns and using Clare of Assisi’s life as a mirror, she will offer reflections and practices that affirm the natural wisdom of the Soul available as we mature as Spiritual Elders. Through the expertise of these presenters, participants will be invited to open the container of sacred gifts which flow from our spirituality, bringing aliveness, depth and meaning in the second half of life.
