SEEING WITH NEW EYES
A WEEKEND EXPERIENCE WITH BARBARA FIAND, SND de Namur
JANUARY 11-12, 2013
"All human longing for the Ultimate is rooted in the context of the time in which it arises. It formulates its vision out of the discoveries and consequent worldview, language, and symbols of its age in order to gain a time relevant approach to that which, in spite of all our striving, nevertheless and at all times remains Holy Mystery.
During our time together we will explore new ways of seeing the depth dimensions of faith for our time. The Spirit of God presences and reveals God’s love now, as God has always done. It behooves us to become aware of this and to live in hope. We will reflect on stories of present day revelation and attempt to see what they tell us about our responsibility as God-bearers with the knowledge and insight we have been given at this moment of history and culture. God wants our hearts to burn. Do they?
Barbara Fiand is a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur. She gives retreats, workshops and courses throughout the country and abroad on issues related to holistic spirituality, prayer, religious life, feminist spirituality, transformation of consciousness, quantum spirituality, and the psychology and spirituality of human maturation. She is the author of ten books and numerous articles as well as cassette tapes. On Becoming Who We Are: Passionate Musings in The Winter of Life is an upcoming book.
