HEARTFULNESS

Transformation in Christ

Inspired by the desire to renew and share Christian Contemplative Prayer, Fr. Thomas Keating OCSO., founded Contemplative Outreach in 1984.

In the contemplative atmosphere of Kylemore Abbey, this silent retreat offers the retreatant a deep immersion in the silence of Centering Prayer and will feature DVD’s of Fr. Thomas, speaking on such topics as The Pursuit of Happiness, The Human Condition, The Divine Indwelling, etc.

The retreat will be enhanced, by the unique opportunity to join the daily Offices of the Benedictine Community of sisters who reside at Kylemore, with Eucharist, and the opportunity for soul accompaniment with retreat facilitators.

Facilitators: Fionnuala Quinn O.P. Coordinator of Contemplative Outreach Dublin, and Lesley-Ann O’Connor who currently serves on the global team for Contemplative Outreach.

New book by Brother Denis

 

denis

 

This is a fresh look at essential Christian belief. It clears away obstacles to faith arising out of false assumptions, misconceptions of the Divine, outdated theology and inadequate views of Scripture and of morality. The basic image taken is that of Jesus calling Lazarus from the tomb and ordering him to be unbound so that he can renew his life. This book is for religious education teachers, parents, spiritual directors and parish groups.
