This conference will attempt to both articulate the depth of crisis of the Church and potential healing responses. The misuse of power, child abuse, and the collective shadow has erupted into the public. A new reformation is needed for the transformation of the institution in a spirit of truth and reconciliation.
Date & Time: Thurs., July 18 at 5:00pm through Sun., July 21 at 10:00am
Presenter: Don Bisson
Fee: $350 (all inclusive)
About the Presenter:
Brother Don Bisson, FMS is, first and foremost, a spiritual director and is widely respected as a specialist in the training, formation and supervision of spiritual directors.
A Marist brother based in Esopus, New York, he has graduate degrees in liturgy, spirituality, and transpersonal psychology, and earned his Doctor of Ministry at the Pacific School of Religion specializing in Spiritual Direction and Jungian Psychology. With more than 70 live audio recordings available, Brother Bisson is internationally recognized for his lectures, workshops, and retreats on the interrelationship of Christian spirituality and Jungian psychology.
His soulful humanity makes Don attractive to the hundreds of people who find their way to virtually everything he offers. He is a man committed to “walking the talk.” From this commitment comes a grounded wisdom and an authentic humility. His gems of wisdom have been formed in the heat and pressure of the deep underground passage of his own healing journey in God. Compassion for what it means to be human is the result, alongside clarity about the compelling call of the Spirit to “wake up” and participate consciously in God’s purposes in our world. This waking up is not an achievement but a process that invites him–and us–into a transformation that is ongoing.
