Contemplation… a Transformative Practice Needed at This Time – S. Nancy Sylvester, IHM

June 21, 2019 - June 23, 2019

Summer Retreat with Sister Nancy Sylvester, IHM

~~Additional days may be added between June 18th and June 27th~~

This retreat explores the power of contemplation as a transformative practice so necessary in our world today. It seems as if everything we thought we knew about how the world works is being turned upside down. It is a time of great uncertainty and change. The weekend will include presentations and processes rooted in individual and communal contemplation. It is led by Nancy Sylvester, IHM. (Eucharistic Liturgy will be available daily.)

Nancy Sylvester, IHM

Nancy founded the Institute for Communal Contemplation and Dialogue (ICCD) in 2002. This work reflects her commitment to dialogue and her belief that the impasse being experienced currently in the work of transformation requires contemplative response and an expanded consciousness. Nancy served in the Presidency of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious; as Vice President of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Monroe, MI; fifteen years on the staff of NETWORK, a national Catholic social justice lobby, ten years as National Coordinator; and board member to numerous organizations. She is an author and a known speaker nationally and internationally.
