TERESA OF AVILA: INTIMACY AND ECSTASY
April 8, 2017
8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.
Teresa of Avila (1515-1582) is one of Christianity’s great mystics and teachers. Her final work, The Interior Castle, is one of the most profound literary works on the contemplative dimension and experiential mysticism.
Prayer stood at the center of Teresa’s teachings. Her fidelity to prayer was a means of deepening her intimate relationship and companionship with God. She considered a life of prayer in terms of love.
Together we will reflect on the light of Teresa’s timeless insights into the human soul, its journey toward God, and how Teresa’s teaching is relevant to our personal contemporary spiritual journey today.
