Opening to the teachings at the heart of contemplative Christianity, in this experiential Wisdom School we will explore Mary Magdalene’s unwavering presence and devotion throughout the Paschal Mystery—and how conscious love can be a transforming force in our own lives as well. Join facilitator Beth O’Brien at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) for this extended weekend retreat. A daily contemplative rhythm will be held across the four days as we graciously flow between meditative silence, sacred chanting, group teachings, communal consciousness work and spiritual dialogue. The cost of this four-day retreat is $375 and includes sessions, lodging and all meals. The commuter fee is $250 and includes sessions, Friday and Saturday lunch and dinner, and Sunday lunch.
