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 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!

 Session III

DECEMBER 5-6, 2014

PROMISE AND HOPE
with
ROBERT LUDWIG

Friday Evening, 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Saturday, 9:30 to 4 p.m.

"Promise and Hope: Advent Reflections on Participation in God's Future"


As the days grow shorter and darkness looms longer, we will gather to wait together in hope and to attend to God who promises an alternative future and invites us to receive these promises and to put our hope in God alone.  We will examine hope and promise in the Hebrew Bible and in the New Testament, in our own experience, and in the emerging faith paradigm. God speaks God's Word in darkness and in light, in shadows and in a bold vision for tomorrow.  We open our selves to Presence and give ourselves to that Presence in hope.

Robert Ludwig served as Director of the Institute for Pastoral Studies, Loyola University Chicago for some 8 years and remained on the faculty for two more years. Bob was one of the most well respected teachers at IPS, Loyola. He also taught for Adult Spiritual Renewal & Empowerment in the Institute for Adult Spiritual Renewal for many years. Since his retirement he and Cathy, his wife, have returned to the DesMoines, Iowa area, originally Bob's home base. He continues to teach, offer presentations, and is available for consulting

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
