Praying with the Poetry of Creation Mystics: Kabir back

July 2, 2022


You are warmly invited to come to Dayspring for any or all of these quiet days of meditation and prayer.  Each retreat will focus on one creation mystic. There will be an opening introduction to the mystic’s life and poetry, followed by silence for going deeper with one of the poems through sitting, journaling, and wandering the paths, meadows, forests and waters of the beautiful, revelatory sacred land.  The retreat will close with a gathering time for silence and optional sharing about the day’s experience.
