The Town Crier – A Newsletter for the Center for Sacred Studies Community
August 15, 2018
Dearest friends and relatives,
Join us for Silent Retreat: August 29 – September 2, 2018
With Darlene Hunter & Wendy Cummins
Join us for an opportunity to sit longer in the Silence, to immerse yourself in your connection to All that is!
Last year, you asked us to add more days to extend the retreat, so you could dip into the silence for longer periods of time. In February this year, we responded to that request and added an additional day, increasing the Silent Retreat to 4 nights/5 days while continuing to offer the 3 night/4 day track as well. We are excited to share that this flow was successful, allowing all to go deeper into the Silence! And more days have been requested…
The Center for Sacred Studies is evolving and transforming!
2018 is proving to be an exciting time – on so many levels!
Ministry Training Program returns in 2019!
Being a Minister of Prayer denotes a practice of walking in the world in dialogue with Creation. This approach is one that is gleaned from the teachings of the “Original Peoples”—who related to the world by “listening” to the world around them as a form of guidance from Spirit. From this perspective, everything is considered as an expression of Spirit. This is a way of being that values being led by the heart, rather than the head.
