 "We live in a world governed by GPS systems. At any given moment, we can know our coordinates. We’ve abandoned the sacred art of getting lost and of the discoveries we make when we stray from the marked path."

--- Christine Valters Paintner, PhD The Soul of a Pilgrim: Eight Practices for the Journey Within

What happens when we have to rely on our inner compass?


A Lenten Lectio Divina Online Retreat

Lectio divina is a practice of being present to each moment in a heart-centered way.  We are often taught in churches to think through our prayers – reciting words and formulas which are valuable elements of our shared traditions, but only one window into God’s presence. In lectio we invite God to speak to us in an unmediated way.  Our memories, images, and feelings become an important context for experiencing God’s voice active in us and we discover it when we pray in a heart-centered way. Those words moving through us break open God’s invitation to us in this moment of our lives and calls us to respond in some way.

Are you longing for a transformative journey to deeper intimacy with God through an ancient practice?  Would you like to cultivate a contemplative way of being with scripture and the world? Would you like to have a guide for the season of Lent supporting you through regular reflections and guided meditation practices?
