The Gospel of Love: Finding Wholeness with Julian of Norwich in Fragmented Times

May 4 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Contemplative Enrichment Day with Mark S. Burrows, Ph.D.

At the turn of the 15th century, Julian of Norwich received 16 “showings” as a middle-aged woman and spent the rest of her life “beholding” them. She eventually produced a book at once provocative and accessible, expanding these “visions of love.” What Julian offers is a remarkably complex and compelling vision of the immensity of God’s generosity, and the radical call of compassion this calls us to embody in our lives. Join us to explore ways to discover your life held by God’s healing wholeness.

This program will be offered both in-person and online via Zoom. Information on how to access the program on Zoom will be sent to participants in advance.

This program will include a morning and an afternoon session of Centering Prayer.

Mark S. Burrows, Ph.D., is an in-demand retreat leader in the U.S. and Europe. A leading voice in the work of integrating theology and the arts, he is widely respected for his work on the Christian mystical tradition. He is also well known as a poet, editor, and author. Mark is a member of the Iona Community and an oblate at Glastonbury Abbey. He lives and writes in Camden, ME.
