Benedictine, Listening


Journey with St Benedict

Theme: Listening: the heart of Presence

Listening has everything to do with a willingness to grow and mature spiritually.   We bring God’s Reign of Love closer when we engage another with a listening heart, a heart that is attentive, rooted in the moment and unattached to our own opinions. Listening well challenges us to reach beyond ourselves, or deep into ourselves. In his Rule of life St. Benedict includes stability, conversion of mind and heart and hospitality as necessary attributes of a listening heart.

Join us for an evening and a day as we reflect on this theme exploring through input and quiet spaces what happens to ourselves and others when we truly listen.

October 14- 4:30-8:00

October 15- 9:00-3:30
