Lecture Series “Domestic Monastery”

October 13, 2021 - October 27, 2021

offered in person and on Zoom

Wednesday October 13, 20, 27

The domestic can also be the “monastic”. Your marriage, your family, and your work can be your own monastery. The alarm clock that wakes you in the morning is your monastic bell and your work and duties each day are your monastic rhythm. Monks have secrets worth knowing and one of those secrets is contained in the aphorism: Go to your cell and it will teach you all you need to know! These lectures will draw wisdom from the monastic tradition to shed light on our own human and spiritual journey.

Blessings our Way to Wholeness – Public Lecture

December 3, 2021

Sponsored by Star of the North Retreat Center

St. Albert AB Canada

Offered on-line and in person

The hunger for blessing is one the deepest hungers in the world. Moreover, blessing others is one of the deepest gifts we can give to others and leave behind. Blessing others is also, as the poet W.B. Yeats suggests, perhaps the deepest (true) joy we can experience in life. What is our hunger for blessing? How do we bless others? What does it mean to know oneself as blessed? How can we live out of a blessed rather than cursed consciousness? How do we bless our way out of despondency?

Keeping Christ Incarnate Retreat

December 3, 2021 - December 5, 2021

Sponsored by Star of the North Retreat Center

St. Albert AB Canada

On-line and in person options

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.
