Teilhard For Our Times ***FULLY BOOKED***

Dates: June 21, 2017 - June 26, 2017

Course Leader: Dr. Cynthia Bourgeault

Cost: 275 single room, 200 per person twin room, 160 dorm. Course fee 180.

There is no required reading for this retreat, but we will be working principally with Teilhard’s masterpiece, THE HUMAN PHENOMENON (a.k.a. The Phenomenon of Man). if you have a copy please bring it to the retreat but don't feel you have to read it all in advance. The recommended translation is the new edition by Sarah Appleton Weber which is superb, but either version will do.

Two valuable resources to help get grounded are as follows:

Ursula King’s wonderful book SPIRIT OF FIRE.

Cynthia's own e-course on “Teilhard for our Times,” which is essentially a succinct summary of our Holy Isle course material. While the course is no longer running as a “live” online course, individuals and even small groups can still “buy” the course for a very reasonable rate and work through the material on their own. That’s all available on the Spirituality and Practice website.

As the retreat is currently sold out, please email Jill Benet to be added to the waiting list:
