The limits and fault lines of our current ways of life are starkly visible in this time of pandemic. Even our ways of thinking about life are being fundamentally challenged.
Everyone on the spiritual journey must confront the still small Voice of Conscience leavened by maturing Consciousness to be able to stand in integrity and truth.
The need is urgent in this moment of profound ‘revolution in human awareness’, inviting nothing less than the emergence of Social Mystics.
This retreat integrates Jungian psychology and contemporary spiritual direction perspectives.
We will also deal with ‘The mystery of hope’.
Facilitator: Brother Don Bisson, fms
Don Bisson, a Marist brother based in Esopus, New York, a specialist in the training, formation and supervision of spiritual directors. He is widely respected in his field of the interrelationship of spirituality and psychology. Don has graduate degrees in liturgy, spirituality, and transpersonal psychology. He earned his Doctor of Ministry at the Pacific School of Religion specializing in Spiritual Direction and Jungian Psychology. He is internationally recognized for his lectures, workshops, and retreats on the interrelationship of Christian spirituality and Jungian psychology. His soulful humanity makes Don attractive to the hundreds of people who find their way to virtually everything he offers. His gems of wisdom have been formed in the heat and pressure of the deep underground passage of his own healing journey in God. Compassion for what it means to be human is the result, alongside clarity about the compelling call of the Spirit to “wake up” and participate consciously in God’s purposes in our world. This waking up is not an achievement but a process that invites him–and us–into a transformation that is ongoing.
