The Mystery of the Incarnation – Jesus, the Church, Christians and All Others

February 8, 2021 - February 11, 2021

8th International Retreat with Rev. Ron Rolheiser, OMI

On-line event

God didn’t come to earth in the flesh for just 33 years. Christ didn’t leave us when he ascended into heaven. We, the Christian community, continue the incarnation. We are the Body of Christ. We do not represent Christ, replace Christ, or become only his mystical body. We ARE the Body of Christ and we continue to give physical flesh to God. This has astonishing implications for how we pray, seek healing, look for guidance, understand religious experience, and for how we “bind and loose” our loved ones. A look at the concept of the Incarnation and its astonishing implications.

Exploring the Roots and Meaning of Religious Fear: Trusting in a Wise, Prodigal, and Fully Empathetic God

February 27, 2021

Sponsored by Vallombrosa Center, Menlo Park CA

The virtual event will be recorded for ticket holders who are unable to attend

Most of us live with too many fears in our lives. And all of us live with religious fears, fears about God, about life, and about our eternal destiny. What kind of fear is healthy in our lives and what kind is unhealthy? From where do our religious fears originate? How do we tell healthy fears from unhealthy ones? This retreat will examine the origins and the complexities of religious fear and, after giving fear its proper dues, will examine some biblical principles which invite us to live with less fear.

Quiet Prophecy: Another Kind of Protest for Social and Religious Transformation

March 10, 2021 - March 24, 2021

On line event via Zoom

Three consecutive Wednesdays

Scripture tells us that, as he grew, John the Baptist “grew strong in spirit”. What if you are the type of person who is “accommodating in spirit”? What if you are not the type of person who can openly protest things and openly challenge others? What are your prophetic gifts? How can your quiet gifts challenge the world and the church to be more just, more loving, and more faith-filled? Is there another kind of “protest” that is powerfully prophetic? Principles for Quiet Prophecy.

A Theology and Spirituality of Sexuality

March 12, 2021 - March 14, 2021

Co – Sponsored by Queen of Apostles Retreat House (Mississauga Ontario) and Queen’s House of Retreats (Saskatoon Saskatchewan)

Offered via ZOOM – technical support for those new to Zoom will be offered. This retreat will be recorded and available for viewing until May 1st for all who register.

Sex is too often seen as setting itself against spirituality. Sex seems too earthy to be connected to spirit. Evidence suggests that more people struggle religiously with the issue of sexuality than with any area in their lives. What is sexuality? Why is it so powerful? Does it come from God or does it set us against God? Why has the church never produced healthy, robust spirituality of sex? This retreat will attempt to articulate a healthy anthropology, theology, and spirituality of sex.

Spiritual Wisdom from the Deep Wells of Christian Mysticism – Principles for Living a Mystically-Driven Life

April 16, 2021 - April 18, 2021

Sponsored by Galilee Center, Arnprior Ontario

Virtual Event

Mysticism is the best kept secret within our spiritual and ecclesial circles. But, alongside Scripture, it is a very rich source of insight and revelation from which to draw guidance for our journey. This retreat will draw on the lives and insights of a number of classical and contemporary mystics, Therese of Lisieux, Julian of Norwich, John of the Cross, Ruth Burrows, and Henri Nouwen, to see what these men and women, famous for touching the souls of so many people, have to offer us. How might we live a mystically-driven life?
