The years from middle age onward can be lived deeply and fruitfully. As we listen in a special way through these years of spiritual opportunity to the natural processes occurring in our bodies, hearts, to our energy and intuition, we hear the invitation to move forward gently, gracefully and contemplatively, embracing all that our God may be extending to us.
This year-long contemplative program, an offshoot of Mariandale’s popular Contemplative Formation Program, will be comprised of 6 overnight gatherings. The gatherings will invite us into a time of listening and speaking from our experience about the spiritual challenges and graces of aging: the diminishments, invitations to surrender, the gifts of stillness, and the blessings of wisdom.
