Quenched by the Desert: Intro to Desert Spirituality

Quenched by the Desert is a whole day recollection for those who are interested in mysticism and a deeper encounter with God in solitude through the desert spirituality. The desert has been a great source of enlightenment and spiritual freedom for many seekers since the dawn of Christianity. The participants will be invited to explore and be empowered by the lives and works of the desert fathers and mothers. They may find a unique encounter with God as they navigate through the desert—whether in the vast, barren physical space where the environmental conditions are extreme or in the seemingly endless darkness and dryness many people feel in their spiritual life.

The participants will be taken to an unusual journey in the desert where great life lessons can be learned. They will be invited to contemplate on the wisdom of the desert as it reveals the richness of a life lived, examined, and quenched by it.
