Theme: RADIANT LOVE: PRAYING WITH THE
PRAYERS OF TEILHARD DE CHARDIN. Teilhard de
Chardin, renowned 20th c. theologian and
paleontologist, was a groundbreaking visionary and
prolific writer, linking science and religion. On this
retreat we will focus on Teilhard’s prayers — devotions
of a heart transformed by holy experiences of what he
called the “hidden power stirring in the heart of matter.”
In the lush beauty of early summer, let us join our
prayers in opening to Radiant Love, alluring each of us
to deeper intimacy with God and new vision for this
threshold time in our broken world.
Leader: Ann Dean is a spiritual director, member of
the Dayspring Retreat Mission Group and Program
Director at the Shalem Institute for Spiritual
Formation. She has been leading spiritual retreats and
conferences for 30 years.
