Most of us think mysticism is something beyond us, something reserved for those who are so attuned to God’s voice that even the clamor of the world often teetering on the brink of chaos can shake their “inward calm.” But as many of the great teachers of the spiritual life remind us, we can be modern day mystics through the practice of awareness. The Divine One is present in our everyday life. This retreat explores how we can honor the mystic within by becoming aware of the love that God has kindled in our hearts. When we live from this mystical center of prayer, we will be catalysts for compassion, reservoirs of reconciliation, and harbors of hope for one another and our world.
