WISDOM SCHOOL: WISDOM WAY OF KNOWING
A FIVE-DAY RETREAT

This Wisdom Way of Knowing Wisdom School will engage participants in the rhythm and tools specific to a "wisdom way of knowing," an "integral way of knowing" that engages and harmonizes the three intelligence centers: heart, mind, and movement. Attendees will participate in a balance of "prayer and conscious work," known in the Benedictine tradition as ora et labora, with teachings and sacred movement interspersed. Participants will engage in lectio divina in group sessions and have times of silence throughout the five days.
