Come to the Quiet– Praying in Sound
Leader: Pat Shea
The geese overhead honking their migration, the chimes singing in the wind, music sung and music played, the rhythm of our breath, the beat of our heart, doors slamming, and children screaming in laughter all announce the presence of God, if we but listen. In sacred listening, all sounds speak the Divine Word. Includes lunch. Fee: $20
Come to the Quiet is an opportunity to enter a day of peaceful, spiritual refreshment. The day begins with a short reflection on ways to engage with and respond to the Divine Word that comes to us in so many ways—a word, holy text, a poem, a piece of art, music, others, nature. Following the short reflection is quiet time to use as you choose. A nutritious seasonal lunch is served at noon and after lunch, continued quiet time. The day ends with a short sharing session.
