Carmelite and Colonial Spain
April 21-May 4, 2022
Beginning at the walled city of Avila, following in the footsteps and spirituality of Sts. Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross, the great Carmelite Doctors of mysticism and spirituality. We will visit Avila, Alba de Tormes, Salamanca, Fontiveros, and Segovia. We also include history and heritage of Spain, including the Islamic and colonial elements. Thus we visit Granada, Cordoba and Seville, along with Madrid and Toledo. Spain is a wonderful country, rich in history and heritage. It hosted the golden age of enlightemnent, when Christianity, Judaism and Islam co-existed with a great sense of peace, wisdom and mutual respect. Parallel schools of mysticism and spirituality mutually enriched each other. Reactionary Catholicism manifested in the Inquisition, eventually destroyed this time of enlighted peace when the Jews and Moslems were expelled from Catholic Spain in 1492.
