Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center — Guided Retreat: Uncovering Our Cosmic Roots

08/07/2015 to 08/14/2015

229 E. Litchfield Rd, Litchfield, CT 06759. Phone: 860-567-3163.

The scriptures from the Book of Psalms to the Gospels sing about our universe as “The House” we have been given to enjoy, care for, and celebrate. When we broaden our vision of our home to include the cosmos, the sun, the stars, and all it contains, we inherit a greater history, a longer story than we can imagine. The presence of the Divine can be found through it all and in it all. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the inherent spirituality that emerges when we are mindfully present to what is all around us, from the smallest to the largest, and contemplate the Divine Presence in the natural world. Liturgy daily.

Presenter: Margaret Galiardi, OP

Fee: $615 private room with bath; $540 private room with hall bath. Non-refundable deposit: $100
