Adult Spiritual Renewal & Empowerment

2014

THE INSTITUTE FOR ADULT SPIRITUAL RENEWAL GOING FORWARD

The Institute for Adult Spiritual Renewal which has for years been an extended program held during the summers will now move to a new format.  We will offer individual “sessions” often here at Emmaus in South Bend, Indiana.  In most instances these will be day long offerings, though  in some cases will cover a span of several days.
Our intention continues to be to offer opportunities to consider deeply where and how Spirit and Soul are luring us to live more expansively and responsibly out of our own authentic adult selves in ways that respect and honor the sacredness of all life.

SESSION I

SPIRITUALITY AND LIFE SERIES
A DAY TO WONDER: NATURE AS SACRED TEXT

Thursday, July 31, 2014
9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

During our time together we will focus on the many ways  the Divine is mediated to us, especially in and through creation.  We will consider how each of us may be invited, through nature, to a place of further response and deeper wisdom.
This day will offer times for group interaction, reflections from facilitator, presence in nature, solitude and reflection and the sharing of a simple meal.
Arrive early for a cup of coffee, tea, etc. 
 If you are coming from out of town and want to arrive the evening before there are a limited number of guest rooms available.


FACILITATOR:  ANNE M LUTHER
Anne is Director of Adult Spiritual Renewal & Empowerment, teaches part time in the Institute for Pastoral Studies at Loyola University Chicago.  She has long been involved in on-going spirituality formation processes including “training” in Spiritual Accompaniment (Direction) and is available for on-going Accompaniment, retreats and other spiritual/theological presentations.
Suggested Offering for Day:  $60 or whatever you are able to offer.  PLEASE DO NOT STAY AWAY DUE TO LACK OF FUNDS.  Call or write to reserve a space, the earlier the better.

SESSION II
SPIRITUALITY AND LIFE SERIES

A DAY WITH PAULA D’ARCY



September 16, 2014
9:30 to 3 p.m.
The Wisdom Teachings as Guidance for Today
Cynthia Bourgeault writes that "Perhaps the problem is not that our vision has grown too small but that we are using too little of ourselves to see."  In this day we'll listen to the ancient teachings designed to open the eye of the heart.
Paula D'Arcy, herself a “wisdom figure” is a writer, retreat leader, and conference and seminar speaker, who travels widely in the United States, Canada, and abroad.  Two of her well know books are The Gift of the Red Bird and A Song for Sarah.  She is also President of the Red Bird Foundation, which supports the growth and spiritual development of those in need and furthers a ministry both to those in prison and those living in third world or disadvantaged cultures.

Suggested Offering for Day:  $60 or whatever you are able to offer.  PLEASE DO NOT STAY AWAY DUE TO LACK OF FUNDS.  Call or write to reserve a space, the earlier the better!

2015
April 2-5, 2015
HOLY WEEK RITUALS
with
DIARMUID O'MURCHU, MSC

FROM DEATH TO NEW LIFE: 
        Celebrating Holy Week 2015

Christians claim that the events of Holy week are a central feature of their faith, but they are frequently celebrated in a way that no longer inspires or nourishes faith.  Adopting creative liturgies with supporting reflective inputs, Diarmuid O’Murchu will facilitate a Triduum program, beginning on Holy Thursday afternoon (4.00 p.m.) and ending with brunch at 10.00 a.m. on Easter Sunday. This will be a time to share, reflect, pray and above all participate in engaging and inspiring liturgies. 

Suggested Offering: $200 (includes meals)
Overnight accommodations: $25 per person per night
