Traits of the Soul: An All Day Contemplative Retreat

May 4

Traits of the Soul: An All Day Contemplative Retreat
with Rev. Marta Flanagan and Bonnie Zimmer
Saturday, May 4, 2024 8:00 am to 4:00 pm
Adelynrood Retreat Center in Byfield MA

What is the next right thing for you to embrace in life? How might you do that well? In this all day contemplative retreat, drawing on insights of the Benedictines, a Christian monastic tradition, and using the tools of Mussar, an ancient Jewish spiritual
practice, we will consider these questions.

Our time together will include gatherings, silence, and journaling.  We will share a breakfast and a silent lunch.

A fee of $60 covers breakfast, lunch and rental of the retreat center.  If this fee creates an obstacle please contact Marta (marta@firstparish.info).

Please register via Realm. Attendance limited to 50, and the registration deadline is April 18th.  If you have any questions, or problems registering, please contact Steph M. via STAR@FirstParish.info.

Adelynrood is an hour drive from Arlington. Adelynrood’s Main House, built in 1914, is gracious and rustic with wide screened porches, an abundance of rocking chairs for relaxing and libraries for browsing.  For more information about Adelynrood see https://www.adelynrood.org/
