    Two internationally known spiritual guides explore integrating our inner and outer journeys. They challenge us to confront our inner and social violence and bring it to healing and transformation in a sacred and ecumenical context. Rohr and Keating each give insights on awakening to God's friendship, coming to know God and ourselves, growing in love through centering prayer, facing evil around us and our demons within us as well as opening our deep selves to divine therapy which heals our wounds.

    This is one of the most mature Christian retreats I've ever listened to. It moves well beyond the Christian spirituality of children. It dives directly into the reality of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, revealing our own identity [created] in the image and likeness of God. Thomas Keating and Richard Rohr point out that the Christian journey of spirituality does not lift us out of the suffering and struggle of life, but actually leads us into them, as we follow our Divine crusifed master Jesus. Rather than escaping our humanity, we are called to embrace it fully, as Jesus did. Not the false humanity that our world teaches us, but our true humanity as God's beloved children created in the divine image. Being truly human like Jesus leads us into many redemptive struggles to let go of our false images of our selves and others. Entering the Kingdom of God is a process of waking up to the great reality of all creation originating from Love, is presently being sustained by Love, and substatially One in being with Love, the Triune God and the source of all being.By allowing Jesus to awaken us and guide us into the reality of this divine union, we become our true selves, true human beings. Contempletive prayer is our heart's consent to participate in union with God. When we choose to accept and actively consent to our union with God, our hearts and minds become united with the love of God for all humanity and creation. Consequently, we recognize that loving non-violent direct action that seeks to heal victims and perpetrators equally is participation in the divine life, crusifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus. In short, our healing, happiness, peace and joy are only found through union with Divine Love, the essence of all being.
