St. Teresa of Ávila Retreat at Mepkin Abbey
September 16, 2019 - September 20, 2019
The Carmelite nun Teresa of Ávila — saint, mystic, and doctor of the church — is one of the greatest teachers of Christian prayer. Her guidance speaks to men and women, laypeople and monastics, beginners and proficients. In this retreat, we will explore Teresa’s rich and beautiful insights on how to grow closer to God through prayer, with practical instructions on how to apply her wisdom to our lives today. The retreat leader, Carl McColman, is the author of several books on Christian contemplation and spirituality, including The Big Book of Christian Mysticism. This retreat is suitable for both newcomers to contemplative spirituality as well as more seasoned practitioners.
