During this stay-at home retreat, we will reflect on how the Paschal mystery of loss, grief and new life can help us embrace the invitation to a deeper and richer life in our later years. We will explore how a growing sense of inner freedom can help us find new meanings and embrace new ways of being. Our five mornings will be interactive, inspired by a “A Spirituality of the Paschal Mystery” by Ronald Rolheiser (a chapter in The Holy Longing) and From Age-ing to Sage-ing by Zalman Schachter-Shalomi. Participants need to be comfortable using Zoom for video conferencing. Afternoons and evenings will allow some time for reading and continued reflection.
