Antime e-course based on retreat teaching:
with Cynthia Bourgeault and Heather Ruce
To our usual psychological way of looking at things, trust must be earned; it is called forth in response to demonstrated trustworthiness. But there is another way of approaching trust, which has always been the way of the great saints and mystics. From this other angle of approach, trust is bestowed—from a fathomless strength and freedom which lies latent in every human soul, flowing like a wellspring from the heart of God.
Cost: $349 CAD (c. £210)

Sources of Wisdom
with Fr Laurence Freeman OSB, Director WCCM
Designed so that you can participate in a way that suits you!
The retreat is structured into one-and-a-half hour sessions: meditation, video of a talk, followed by a time for personal reflection. It doesn’t involve setting aside lots of time, but will work best if you designate a period during which you are on retreat: a morning, an afternoon, a day, a weekend, a week or a month.
