A Retreat with
Julian of Norwich as Guide
" All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well"
~ Julian of Norwich
A three day retreat of
art, music, lecture & contemplation
with Kayleen Asbo, Ph.D.
Friday, May 8 - Sunday, May 10
Retreat Theme The 14th century mystic Julian of Norwich was the first woman to write in the English language who centuries later influenced TS Eliot's masterpiece, The Four Quartets.. A contemporary of Chaucer's, Julian spent the first half of her life as a wife and mother. A near death experience during the Black Plague propelled her into a life of deep contemplation where she spent the rest of her days musing upon the extraordinary visions she had experienced in her illness-- visions that affirmed the goodness of creation and abounding force of love of the universe. Her writing is poetic, wise and saturated with images of God and Christ as both mother and father, in language that is deeply poetic and filled with tenderness.
