“The Birth of the Planetary Human” – Silent Retreat with Sr. Mimi Maloney, SNJM

June 18, 2018 - June 25, 2018


This retreat provides an opportunity to reflect on the insights of Teilhard de Chardin, Thomas Berry and their experience of The Sacred Epic of Evolution as the new trans-forming context for our lives. Our retreat will integrate recent scientific discoveries with our spiritual traditions in an attempt to foster greater personal and planetary well-being.

Sister Mimi Maloney, SNJM, completed the Earth Literacy program at Genesis Farm in New Jersey and received a Masters in Culture and Spirituality from the Sophia Center at Holy Names University in Oakland. Her current interest is in the Epic of Evolution and its significance for Christian faith and practice.

Reverend Carol McKinley received her MDiv from Seattle University in 2004. She coordinates the Faith in Action Ministry at the Olympia Unitari-an Universalist Congregation in Olympia, WA.

Rev. Bob McNeese, Diocese of Spokane, WA, will join the retreat as Sacramental Minister. 

Cost for single room for the retreat (includes meals): $650
