We women understand the importance of touching, seeing, hearing and tasting in order to make things real. God knows our yearnings to experience him physically. How do we do that with God? The answer lies in the metaphors for the Divine. These metaphors continue to remind us of God’s presence, protection and grace. Through Scripture, storytelling, reflection, discussion and group experience come to embrace our Lord more fully.
This retreat will take each man where he is and enable him to discover new habits that will enhance his personal life, his family/marriage and public life. Prayer, the Word, contemplation, reconciliation, exploration of “male issues” and the Eucharist will be the main components of this retreat.
During this weekend Carmel Boyle will take you on a symbolic pilgrimage to visit the sacred places of your soul’s journey. In a reflective atmosphere of prayer, song, poetry, gentle movement, ritual and meditation Carmel will share her own faith which is rooted in Celtic Spirituality. The journey will be in the company of the Trinity, Angels and Saints, especially St. Patrick and St. Brigid.
