Growing in Wisdom: Seeking Deeper Generativity is a two-year program for those who are embracing the second half of life and who are longing to explore the spiritual invitations of their wisdom years. How do I give my life to the world? And how do I prepare for eventual illness, diminishment and death, so that my death is my final blessing to my family, community and the world? This program is rooted in the Forest Dwelling Program, Oblate School of Theology, and the ground-breaking work of Fr. Ron Rolheiser OMI. The program involves four 5-day intensives (September and February) over two years, monthly meetings with other participants in Elder Circles, a monthly meeting with a spiritual director, and optional monthly book studies.

The Growing in Wisdom program is primarily offered on zoom. Applications are now being accepted for the September 2023 – June 2025 program. For more information, please contact Nancy Phillips, Coordinator,

Wrestling with God and with Love – Resistance and Surrender within Our Spiritual Journey

What do love and God ask of us? That can be answered in a single word: Surrender. But much inside of us resists, wanting its own way; so goes the journey. Jacob wrestled an entire night with God; the great prophets often said to God, The Will be Changed; Jesus himself sweated blood in Gethsemane, asking God to change his will; and even in our most intimate relationships we resist losing our independence. Our journey in faith and in love is a constant struggle between resistance and surrender. What drives this? What is healthy and what is not? Understanding God, understanding ourselves, understanding our struggle, and understanding love.

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

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?

“A Theology and Spirituality of Sexuality – Understanding the Complex Fire Within”

Sexuality is an integral part of the soul and its energies must be understood and channeled within a framework that respects the soul. Indeed, the union of sexuality and spirituality is like an electrical connection. A bad connection is disastrous. No connection is equally bad. A good connection generates life and joy. Lived through lovingly and faithfully, sex, perhaps more than anything else, has the power to help us break the casings of selfishness and bitterness and open us further and further to a more gracious adulthood. But, rarely, in any religion or culture, has there been a truly generative connection between sexuality and spirituality. How do we bless Eros and at the same time protect its sacred depth? How do we befriend, enjoy, and celebrate sexuality, even as we properly protect it and ourselves?
