Radiant Love: Journey Inward, Journey Outward, Journey Together back

February 27, 2020

It is not too late to register!

   * Are you longing for a fuller spiritual life?

   * Have you been participating in Quiet Days and desire to go deeper?

   * Is Radiant Love moving you to journey with others in tending the Spirit’s call? 

Join this unique offering of four monthly silent retreat days to deepen in the four core dimensions of the committed spiritual life. Over the decades, the ecumenical Church of the Saviour in which Dayspring is rooted has found these to be the essence of authentic, transformative spiritual community.

Overall, these retreat days will focus on being on a journey together in a community of spiritual seekers who are drawn to the abundant grace of Radiant Love. Each retreat day will have a rhythm of contemplative meditation, creative reflection and silent prayer:

  1. February 27, Opening to Love in Prayer – Fostering a growing awareness of living in the presence of divine Love illuminating the core of all being and inviting us to ever-unfolding relationship and creativity.
  2. March 26, Embracing Vision and Mission – Attuning to the fullness of God’s vision and hope for the whole interconnected community of life.
  3. April 23, Listening for Call in Community – Recognizing that each one of us is uniquely called and gifted to serve a piece of God’s dream of justice and peace at this place and time in our broken world.
  4. May 28, Growing in Spiritual Discernment and Joy – Committing to lifelong practices, in solitude and in community, for distinguishing and attending to the healing, revelatory movements of the Spirit.
