[FULL] Contemplative Ways of Being – Fr. Michael Fish, OSB Cam [FULL]

June 5, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - June 12, 2019 @ 12:00 pm

This retreat and wait list is FULL.

Contemplative Way to Being Retreat looks at the “how” to live from a still center in our chaotic world. We’ll examine ourselves and life from within and without and, hopefully, identify practices that will nourish the true self and open within the well of living waters. The beauty of Villa Maria together with a relaxed schedule will truly make this ‘a vacation with the Beloved’ when we respond to the invitation “to away and rest” and are served by “an aproned God”.

Rev. Michael Fish, OSB, Cam., is a native of South Africa, born in Johannesburg. Michael is a Camaldolese Benedictine at New Camaldoli Hermitage in Big Sur, California. Michael is engaged in spiritual direction to guests and retreatants at the Hermitage as well as directing retreats. In Michael’s 41 years of Religious/Monastic life one of the most formative periods for him was the ten years he spent in a Zulu village in South Africa which shaped his call to contemplative life as it exposed him to the wisdom, beauty and simplicity of rural people and their life, an experience that still fuels his approach to life and contemplation today.

Eucharistic Liturgy is available daily and we will have a reconciliation service.

Retreat Cost: $700 (includes single occupancy room, meals, and presentations)
