Guild for Spiritual Guidance Retreat on Everyday Mysticism, Litchfield CT and Online

Loading Events

A Graduate Guild semi-annual weekend retreat with our presenter Sophfronia Scott, author of the book The Seeker and the Monk: Everyday Conversations with Thomas Merton (Broadleaf Books, 2021). This special event is sponsored by the Graduate Circle of The Guild for Spiritual Guidance and is open to everyone!

Mysticism is often viewed as the privileged experience of a few chosen, holy individuals. However, the Jesuit priest and theologian Karl Rahner wrote about “everyday mysticism,” and Carmelite Sister Ruth Burrows described the mystical life simply as “God touching the depths of our being.” God is closer than we think–to all of us. But how can we become more aware of when the divine is near? We’ll explore everyday mysticism as life events filled with God’s unmistakable presence. Sharing Thomas Merton’s experiences and her own, Sophfronia will help attendees notice, identify, and appreciate mystical encounters in their everyday lives.
