Seven Mansions of the Interior Castle

Thursday, Feb 14, 2019 – Saturday, Feb 16, 2019

5:00pm – 1:00pm

INTERIOR CASTLE is one of the most celebrated books on mystical theology in existence.

Join us for a special retreat weekend, offering sacred space and time to explore the Seven Mansions of Teresa of Avila’s Interior Castle.  Teresa is one of Christianity’s great mystics and teachers.  The Seven Mansions of the Interior Castle is her final work and one of the most profound literary works on contemplation and experiential mysticism.  Prayer stood at the center of Teresa’s teaching.  Her fidelity to prayer was a means of deepening her intimate relationship with God.  She considered a life of prayer in terms of love.  Together we will reflect on the light of Teresa’s timeless insights into the human soul, its journey towards God, and how Teresa’s teaching is relevant to our personal contemporary spiritual journey today.
