LIVING FROM A GRATEFUL HEART: A MEDITATIVE WRITING RETREAT WITH MEG ASHCROFT, O.PRAEM.OBL.
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2018, 9 A.M.-4 P.M., at Our Lady of Guadalupe Commons at Santa Maria de la Vid (Norbertine) Abbey, 5825 Coors Blvd. SW, Abq.
“Everything is gratuitous, everything is gift. The degree to which we are awake to this truth is the measure of our gratefulness. And gratefulness is the measure of our aliveness,” writes Br. David Steindl-Rast. Yet our activities, concerns and relationships can so consume our waking life that it can be challenging to cultivate gratefulness. This day of meditative writing is an opportunity to focus on gratitude for what we have received so that our attention and energy naturally shift to the Giver, causing us to live more selfless and happier lives.
The offering for the retreat day is $55.00, which includes lunch. All are welcome to participate—no writing experience is necessary! Please register by Monday, Feb. 5, by calling 505-873-4399, or emailing [email protected]
