Contemplative Activism Retreat

September 29, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - October 2, 2022 @ 1:00 pm

Scroll down for application. First step is to choose the style of room (subject to availability).

Facilitated by Greg Kennedy, Ehaab D. Abdou (Wilfrid Laurier University) & others

The need for ecological and social activism in today’s world is undeniable. But how do we keep up the essential struggles for peace, justice and the integrity of creation without succumbing to the many possible burn-outs of body, spirit, hope and happiness?

This four day retreat aspires to deepen in retreatants both their commitment to work creatively for a better world and their capacity to sustain this work in  wholesome, life-giving ways.

Sharing practices of meditation, physical exercise, prayer, artistic expression and intellectual engagement, participants will fortify their ability to be contemplatives in action, wherever their particular sphere of activism lies.

All persons concerned about Earth and neighbour will benefit from this interactive retreat.

Each day provides ample time for personal prayer and reflection, group sharing and interaction, plus optional short periods of individual spiritual direction.
