A Weeklong Retreat in the Carmelite Tradition
** Only Commuter Slots Still Available **
July 16 – July 21, 2023
The Carmelite tradition began with a small group of Christians coming together in a valley on Mount Carmel in Israel in the early 1200’s. Life in the valley included an atmosphere of silence and solitude. The hermits came together for daily Eucharist and weekly dialogue. Their fundamental activity was a contemplative attending to God’s loving presence.
This retreat/seminar will reflect the life lived long ago on Mount Carmel, but with additional elements of instruction in the tradition. With the saints of Carmel as our guides, we will explore the origins of Carmel, our living tradition, and the nature of contemplative prayer.
