BRIDGES TO CONTEMPLATIVE LIVING – Dec 20

Presenter: Sr. Chris Machado, SSS Wednesdays • 10:00 am–12:00 noon December 20, 2017 Our Bridges program is beginning Book Five. The process gently leads people into a deeper, more contemplative and reflective mode of living. If you long for a life lived at a deeper and more enriching level, this might be what you’re looking for. Each session includes contemplative prayer, time for reflection, study of texts by Thomas Merton and other well-known spiritual writers and contemplative dialogue with the group. This program has been meeting for some time, but we are always open to new members. We would be thrilled to have you join us! Suggested donation: $5.00 per session

AWAKENING TO AN EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIP TO LIFE – Jan 7

Presenter: Sr. Deborah Lorentz, SSS, M.Ed. in Religious Studies Sundays • 1:00–3:30 pm January 7, 14, 21, 28, February 4, 11, 18, 25, March 4, 2018 Teilhard de Chardin, Fr. Thomas Berry and Sr. Ilia Delio are just some of the visionaries who have paved the path for a new way of approaching our place in the universe. But how can we live out these insights in our own lives? How does one live out what it means to be alive at this time in history—in short, how to be an evolutionary? Come join those of us who are pushing the boundaries of consciousness and learning to sit in meditation and contemplation with the understanding that we are part of God’s creation and have responsibility for bringing this consciousness into our lives for the sake of our world. Fee: $150.00 for the entire series Contact: Sr. Deborah at (818) 815-4496
