It’s hard to believe, but next Sunday begins Advent. Advent is a journey. A season inviting us to prepare. A season asking us to engage and dance with it. We wait with the hope of new birth in the world. This year, I have teamed up with my friend, Monica Hix, creator of Inner Ground, and Jacinta White, poet/writer, to provide a free, online Advent Retreat.
Each week, art (Ally Markotich), poetry (Jacinta White) and meditation (Monica Hix) along with guidelines for using Visio Divina and journaling prompts as an invitation to deeper reflection will be offered.
The themes each week are:
Week 1: Yearning to go
Week 2: Surrendering to the path
Week 3: Wisdom & gifts along the way
Week 4: Following our inner compass
Christmas Day: Awe & wonder
Advent Pilgrimage: Journey Toward Incarnation is hosted through Inner Ground’s site, found here. The retreat is free and open to all. Each Sunday, you will receive a link to the new page. To register, send your name and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org
