Journeying Inward

April 29 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm


Life is a journey into our authentic self. Benedictine spirituality provides guidance and practices to listen to God, ourselves and others. Connect and experience a community of women seeking spiritual growth. Using poetry, scripture, reflection, and discussion, explore the inner life that can lead to greater meaning.

This virtual experience is for single women 20-40.

The sisters offer this experience for women because we know how important it is to have mentors on the inner journey.

Together, we’ll discover:

  • An overview and introduction: self-knowledge
  • Journaling
  • Prayer as presence
  • Silence, solitude, centering prayer, community
  • Listening and responding to God: lectio divina, enneagram
  • Continuing the journey, humility
