Contemplation—A Transformative Practice Needed at this Time
led by Nancy Sylvester, IHM
Through the lens of the Wisdom tradition, Jesus calls us to transformation—to become fully alive. This call to become our authentic selves is the transformation possible through contemplation. Jesus calls us to see in new ways—to wake up. Through contemplative practice, we develop the capacity to see in new ways which is critically needed if we are to address the injustices we face out of a new consciousness. Those of us serious about our spiritual journey are being called from the future to imagine new ways of being and doing. Come and explore this together. This retreat is open to the public.
Nancy Sylvester, IHM founded the Institute for Communal Contemplation and Dialogue in 2002 in response to her experiences working for justice and right relationships in church and in society. She serves as President of the Institute and as Executive Director designing, planning, and implementing, the Institute’s various programs. Nancy brings to this project her commitment to dialogue and collaborative work style and her belief that the impasse being experienced currently in the work of transformation of church and society requires a contemplative response.
