There is a depth in each of us that we have not fully explored.  You do not have to live in a monastery to discover that depth.  It is helpful, though, to get in touch with your own monastic heart.  The monk is a universal archetype of our search for the Beloved.   

Many of us experience an unfathomable longing that we can’t always name.  The saints and poets name it well when they speak of this yearning as ‘homesickness for God’.  We are seeking the face of the Beloved.  We are searching for the deepening places.
In the beautiful struggle of daily life the soul, at times, gets crowded out of our day. The soul is a bit shy and does not demand center stage.  How can we learn to honor the soul’s need for reflection?
In this retreat, we will look at ways of keeping vigil with your life that include monastic practices. 
Sister Macrina will draw from her writings, especially Seven Sacred Pauses: Living Mindfully through the hours of the day and Abide: Keeping Vigil with the Word of God.
