Levanté 1

With Fr. Michael Fish OSB. CAM - (prerecorded videos) and Facilitated by Tim Scorer

October 28 - 30, 2022

A new video retreat designed to help us find the Divine in everyday life.

Levanté 1 is the first of Michael Fish’s fascinating new video retreat series, designed to help us recognize the opportunities for personal growth that are often hidden within everyday experiences – a springboard inviting fresh perspectives on life’s challenges and rewards.

Born of Michael’s experiences during his arduous and eventful fifth Camino across Spain, Levanté 1 focuses on how simple everyday events hold valuable lessons for living life in the “now”. We will learn how viewing each day as a separate, distinct experience can reveal simple, easily overlooked opportunities for us to live more fully in the present and in the presence of the Divine.

In Levanté 1, Fr. Michael takes us along during the first five days of his trek across Spain on the Camino Levanté. This route of the Camino de Santiago is by far the road less travelled. Amazing and unpredictable, the Levanté journey provided a wealth of wonderful opportunities to see what God can teach us about each and every life experience. Michael uses his remarkable gift of storytelling and metaphor to show us how these experiences can hold the key to opening our hearts to a wider view of our relationship with ourselves, our families and the world around us.
