About this Event

A Contemplative Retreat with Mary Oliver and Roger Schutz

Led by Kayleen Asbo, Ph.D

Join us for a day-long retreat focused on finding the “still small voice within”. Together, we will weave together the poetry of Mary Oliver and music of Taize as we discover the inspiring journeys of both Mary Oliver and Brother Roger Schutz (founder of Taize) and their embrace of spiritual simplicity. Celtic spiritual practices including Lectio Divina, nature walks, musical chanting and guided journaling will help us connect to our own inner wisdom in this day of beauty and contemplation.

Kayleen Asbo, Ph.D. is a poet, musician, scholar, mythologist and spiritual director. She has been a pilgrim to Taize, France seven times and has led hundreds of Taize services over the past fifteen years both in the US and abroad. As the director of Mythica, she leads retreats, workshops and pilgrimage around the world that introduce modern ecumenical seekers to ancient contemplative practices.

Praying

It doesn’t have to be

the blue iris, it could be

weeds in a vacant lot, or a few

small stones; just

pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don’t try

to make them elaborate, this isn’t

a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which

another voice may speak.”

― Mary Oliver, Thirst
