Lenten Silent Retreat

Venue: Pallotti College, Millgrove

Leader: Ruth Fowler

Theme: The Spiritual Path: Obedience and Human Flourishing?

In all the major religious traditions, obedience is identified as a foundational practice for those wishing to attain to the goal of union or enlightenment or nirvana. However in western culture today obedience is regarded as an obstacle to human flourishing and for many Christians it carries very negative associations. In my talks I wish to focus on the spiritual path for us as meditators and Christians, and suggest the importance of recovering a contemplative understanding of obedience for human flourishing today.
