Mystagogy of the Forest New Date Announced – July 30th

We invite you to de-escalate and disengage from the noble struggles of life by spending a day in the woods of Glenstal Abbey. Hear the tidal wave of God’s nurturing presence fighting on your side, bringing all things gently to their beautiful completion. Be led into the mysteries of life by the mystagogy of the forest.
The retreat day begins at 10am and will end at 4pm. A light lunch will be provided. The morning will be spent with Br Anthony Keane as he leads the group through the forest at Glenstal Abbey. In the afternoon there will be time for personal quiet space and reflection.
Trees are written for our benefit
their dance of competition and diplomacy
their uprightness and faithfulness in prayer
their memories of the past and of the future
all find a resonance in the deep buried treasure of ourselves
The retreat day costs 75 euros which includes lunch.
