The truth is that we are always home. On this retreat day, we will explore coming home to our bodies, to ourselves, to the present, our own presence and The Presence, and to our place and purpose in the world. I will offer what I consider to be some important landscapes for exploration, but the journey and the destination are yours.
You only have to let the soft animal of your bodyMary Oliver: Wild Geese
love what it loves.
I will lead some prayer and meditative reflections. There will be times to think, reflect, and pray alone. There will be gentle and safe opportunities to talk with and listen to a few others.
When we take up occupation of the site of our bodies in stillness before God, we are granted a place to be, simply in virtue of being there as material beings made by God.Rowan Williams: Lear and Eurydice
