A New Year Monasteries of the Heart eRetreat
The psalms express the full range of religious faith and the human experience. They are poems of lament, praise, confusion, and hope. They are prayers that represent the universal story of the soul’s journey through life. Walking with the Psalms, an online Zoom retreat which offers wisdom and shared reflection, is an invitation to welcome the psalms deep into your own spiritual journey until they become so familiar and meaningful that they walk with you on the way.
This online Zoom retreat will be Saturday, January 28, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time. The retreat day includes time for presentations, small group shared reflection and solitude for personal reflections on the psalms. We recommend that you have a pen and a journal or paper available for the retreat experience. For those who are unable to join us on that particular day and time, as well as for those who participate, a recording of the retreat experience will be available after January 28.
All registrants will receive an email with the Zoom link and retreat information on Friday, January 27 at 2:00 p.m. (ET), and another email with the link and information on Saturday, January 28 at 10:00 a.m. (ET). Please register for this retreat BY January 28 at 10:00 a.m. (ET) at the latest. All registrants will also receive a video recording of the retreat afterward.
Mary Ellen Plumb, OSB, and Katie Gordon, Monasteries of the Heart staff members, will co-facilitate this experience from their own appreciation of the wisdom and grace of the psalms and the prominent place of the psalms within the monastic’s journey into the heart of God.
