“The entire material universe speaks of God’s love, his boundless affection for us. Soil, water, mountains; everything is, as it were a caress of God.” Laudato Si 84
During the retreat we will ponder on the quest to realign the angst, ambiguities, joys and wonder of life, with the consciousness energy of a universe that is continuously emerging and birthing itself anew – in, with, and through us.
“Ask the beasts and they will teach you;
the birds of the air, and they will tell you;
ask the plants of the earth and they will teach you;
and the fish of the sea will declare to you.” Book of Job (12, 7-8)
