Gestating Grace: Growing in Faith Through Difficult Times

Everyone experiences troubling situations at one time or another. Disturbances and difficulties offer an opportunity for spiritual growth. Christianity refers to this experience as the paschal mystery. This process of life-death-new life  mirrors the journey of Jesus and is at the heart of spiritual growth. How do we embrace the dying parts of this cycle that precede promised growth? How do we enter into the unknown, keep hope in times of suffering and discouragement? Who and what sustains and supports us until we emerge from the chrysalis of darkness into the birth of fuller compassion and deeper peace? As Sr. Joyce Rupp facilitates this retreat she will reflect on these questions. Through creative communal prayer, conferences, quiet reflective periods and group dialogue she encourages participants to enter into the heart of the paschal mystery with confidence, trusting they will find the peace and hope they desire as they renew their dedication to the Holy One.

The Liberated Heart: Becoming a Transforming Presence of Love

Each day we begin again to be a person of great love. In this process of continual spiritual growth, we meet up with the joy and wonder of life. We also encounter endless activity, non-awareness, personal weaknesses, difficulties and unexpected turns on the road. In befriending these barriers and obstacles we discover and claim our inner goodness, and take this with us as we live ever more compassionately in a world filled with suffering.

Boundless Compassion: Creating a Way of Life

In an era of violence, hostility and a “them or us” attitude, how can the wide divisions and enmities be lessened? What will it take to draw forth the loving-kindness inherent within one’s self and others? What can be done to enable activation of the teachings of Jesus in order to live more compassionately? Joyce Rupp will present a vision of life based on the gospels with a compassionate approach to societal issues today. This retreat flows from her recently published book on compassion. The retreat offers practical approaches to changing hearts and re-invigorating hope amid the current cultural quagmire of discouragement. During this retreat, Joyce Rupp will invite participants to enter the inner terrain of their daily lives. She will provide both theory and practical suggestions from a variety of spiritual traditions in order to explore the process of becoming a more peaceful and whole human being.

Self-Compassion in an Era of Endless Activity

The person that church ministers often forget to be kind to be their own self. They diligently tend to others and what needs to be done and get lost in the dust-storm of activity. While a focus on service defines a disciple of Christ, if attentive presence is not given to the one who serves, a dedicated sense of purpose can easily slide into fatigue and burn-out. Come, give yourself the gift of being re-inspired and refreshed as Joyce Rupp shares how Jesus was self-compassionate and how those who serve in his name can do likewise.

Coming out of Exile: Welcoming What our Spirit is Missing

As we grow into wholeness we discover within ourselves aspects that need to be recognized, accepted, and integrated into our lives. How do we call home these vital qualities and unwanted aspects of self that have been lost, ignored, forgotten, forced away or rejected? As we discover these banished facets of ourselves and welcome them as sources for our inner growth, we cultivate an ability to be a catalyst for spiritual transformation and transmitter of peace in our personal and ministerial life.

Liberating the Heart: A Journey of Transformation

Spiritual liberation involves affirmation and acceptance of the enduring quality of one’s core goodness. It also requires a recognition of personal obstacles and a choice to become free from interior barriers that limit spiritual growth. This retreat day focuses on an in-depth approach to becoming a more whole human being, one whose vision and way of life becomes ever more transparent and animated. This inner freedom leads to an expansion of compassion and to dwelling in fuller harmony with both self and the larger world. Come and restore your joy, peace and passion for life.
