From Seeker to Sage: Journey to the Unknowable

“A common bonding takes place in all who are attracted to the transformative process. Such is the ultimate
lineage of all spiritual lineages emerging in the various religious traditions. We are companions in the search,
moved by a common perspective and inspiration.” ….. Fr. Thomas Keating

The “Spiritual Journey” is a metaphor for how our beliefs change and develop throughout life. In the beginning, we
often do not realize that we have entered upon a spiritual path as we begin to search for the hidden gnosis (sacred
knowing) of mind, heart and soul that is emerging within us.

Some approach the Journey from an intellectual or educational perspective; others may seek reconciliation or desire to
know the existence of God. Some people simply want to become a better human being and ponder the true meaning of life.

The Lenten season provides an opportunity to come together to reflect upon ……

 Our personal spiritual journey; from Seeker to Sage
 Exploring stages and seasons of the various paths we have traveled
 Our relationship with Divine Being
 Realization that we have been led every step of the way by a loving, mysterious unknowable God.
Join us as we move through the different stages of spiritual growth from our awakening moments, through our seeking and a
gradual restructuring of consciousness.

This retreat will provide Centering Prayer in community, presentation, interactive experience,

small group process and periods of silence and solitude.
